Here we are into another weekend and this one is a big one with a lot going on. It is the UK football season home opener today...kickoff at 7 pm, plus it's a holiday weekend and we have to track rain. The potential for very heavy rain is there too. So far, the rain has been pretty hit and miss and that is okay! We have higher chances of receiving rain through Sunday and Monday as well.
There will be breaks here and there and not everyone will see the torrential rain, but there is a lot of moisture to work with as you've probably noticed more humidity around today. Rain totals look to be up between 1 and 3 inches in spots over the next 2 days! Lightning and thunder plus a few strong wind gusts are also on the table today which will pose a threat for tailgating. Please be weather aware today if you are planning to be outdoors tonight and this weekend.
Temperatures will be a bit lower due to the rain and clouds, but the mugginess will remain high. Tomorrow, we'll see the same kind of action, plenty of showers around and a few thunderstorms, but there will be breaks between the heavy rains. Same goes for Labor Day as well. Eventually, we'll see the action winding down a little bit into next week as temperatures hang out in the upper 70s and low 80s all week.
