Wondering what the weather will bring this Labor Day weekend before making your plans? Wonder no more, we’ve got your back… Here’s the latest summary from the NOAA for the upcoming Labor Day weekend:
Recent above normal temperatures and humid weather in the US Northeast will take a break at the beginning of the weekend when we should expect more seasonable temperatures, but towards the end of the weekend above-normal temps are forecast to make a return and last through midweek.
Scattered rain showers are possible across much of the eastern half of the country, while the hot and dry conditions that have fueled ongoing wildfires will continue in the West.
The greatest chances for rainfall exist in the Midwest, where heavy rain this weekend — coupled with recent rainfall in the region — could result in flash flood development for parts of Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Minnesota, and Illinois. Wet weather is also likely for states along the Gulf Coast.
As the weekend draws to a close, the northern Rockies begin to cool, while temperatures in the Southern California desert and Arizona will continue to soar into next week.
