Due to the heat and humidity, showers and storms will form across the region. Some rain and storms could be intense with heavy rain, lightning and gusty winds. Overnight lows through the weekend will remain in the lower 70s.

While not a washout for all, it would be a good idea to have a rain back-up plan this Labor Day Weekend, in case a storm moves over your neighborhood.

Speaking of Labor Day, Monday will again feature partly cloudy skies along with afternoon highs in the 80s and 90s. Scattered to isolated rain and storms will populate in the afternoon and evening times. Lows will hover in the 70s under partly cloudy skies.
