If Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start to summer, then Labor Day Weekend is the unofficial end to summer. It's sad to see summer go, but Mother Nature is going to make sure you take advantage of the holiday weekend outdoors with some very summer-like weather. Heat and humidity will be the big stories, but there will be some storms later Sunday into Sunday night. Overall, much of the weekend is looking dry for your outdoor plans.
Mostly clear out there so far this evening but some clouds and possibly some rain showers will move into the area later tonight. It'll be a very mild night. Lows tonight will only dip down to around 70°. A few showers or a thunderstorm could linger into early Saturday. Overall, Saturday is looking dry for outdoor plans. Hopefully, your plans involve water because it'll be hot and humid. Highs will top out in the upper 80s to around 90° in Western Wisconsin.
Another balmy night, tomorrow night, for the area. Sunday is also looking very hot and humid. Many areas could make another run at 90° before storms arrive by early evening and become widespread into Sunday night along a passing cold front. Storms will end by early on your Monday.
Labor Day is looking much more comfortable as cooler and drier air rushes in behind that cold front. Highs will be near 80° on Monday with much lower humidity. It's looking perfect for all those backyard barbecues!
A weak system will bring clouds and the possibility of a few showers to the area on Tuesday. Some steadier rain could be possible to the south as this system passes by.
We get another break in the action on Wednesday with sunshine and seasonable temperatures. The next system we're watching for rain is on Thursday. Behind that system, a strong cold front will drop temperatures for the end of next week. Highs will only be in the 60s by Friday, which is below average for this time of the year.
So if you're a fan of the heat and humidity, soak it all in this holiday weekend!
- Federal meteorologists say the current El Nino is already the second strongest on record for this time of year and could be one of the most potent weather changers of the past 65 years.
