Forecast Discussion
Saturday-Tuesday: The main feature that will dominate the area's weather over the Labor Day holiday weekend will be weak trough. The trough will slowly retrograde westward from the SE US coastline to the north central Gulf over the forecast period. This will mean partly cloudy skies with a slight chance for scattered showers/storms each day. Temperatures will be in the lower 90s on Saturday and in the upper 80s on Sunday through Tuesday. Winds will be around 5 mph from the east to northeast on Saturday, from the east to southeast on Sunday through Tuesday. PM2.5 is expected to be in the YELLOW range through Tuesday while Ozone stays in the GREEN range. ML
