NOWCAST THROUGH LATE DAY:
Mainly cloudy, warm, and humid with showers and storms likely by this afternoon.
7am: Partly Sunny 72°
10am: Mainly Cloudy 82°
1pm: Mainly Cloudy, Scat'd Showers/Storms 88°
4pm: Scat'd Showers/Storms 82°

LABOR DAY WEEKEND:
It will not rain the entire time this holiday weekend, but you'll have to factor in that possibility while making outdoor plans. A slow-moving storm system will park itself over the region late Saturday into Sunday. Lots of Gulf moisture feeding into this system will lead to the development of showers and a few thunderstorms by late morning. Rain increases in coverage west to east Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. Locally heavy rainfall is possible. Numerous showers and storms are likely into Sunday. More clouds than sun will keep temperatures lower...topping out in the upper 80s today and lower 80s Sunday.

Labor Day may the best day overall for outdoor activities. Expect more sunshine and a smaller chance for just a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs jump back in the lower 90s to close out the weekend. It will remain quite humid through Monday.

MORE HEAT NEXT WEEK:
Labor Day may signal the unofficial end of Summer, but very warm and humid conditions will persist well into next week. We'll have chances for scattered showers and storms Tuesday and Wednesday, with another shot for isolated thundershowers Friday. Highs will range from the upper 80s to lower 90s with lows around 70.
