A series of low pressure systems will pass by through the region right on time for the holiday weekend.

On Saturday, the bulk of the day will be dry with partly sunny skies. The southwesterly flow from a departing are of high pressure will allow the humidity to be on the uncomfortable side. A warm front approaching the area late in day could spark up a few showers in spots later in the day. The good news is that there is a good chance though that some areas will stay dry through the entire day. Highs will be in the mid 80s in the city, lower 80s elsewhere.

Sunday features a better chance than Saturday for scattered showers as an area of low pressure goes through the area. Most of these showers will redevelop earlier in the afternoon and a few of them could briefly produce heavy downpours. Again while the chance is better for showers, it is important to note that the scattered about and the day itself won’t be a washout. Temperatures will be very warm with highs in the upper 80s.

By Labor Day, we will be in the thick of it as a stronger area of low pressure slides through there area. Numerous showers are expected throughout the day, and heavy downpours will not be out of the question. 1-2 inches of rain will a good bet. Anybody traveling on this day may have to deal with major airport delays and flooded roadways.

If you are considering to do any outdoor activities this long weekend, ther best time to do them would be either Saturday or Sunday.
