Cool Labor Day before soaking rain on Tuesday and Wednesday

Labor Day weekend so far hasn't been too bad! Saturday was a stupendous day and although we had a bit of rain at times on Sunday it was warmer around 80 and a little muggy. Labor Day itself will be decent with waves of clouds but staying dry until after sunset. Temperatures will be cooler with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 60s for most.

The forecast changes after sunset Monday with waves of rain moving in for most of Tuesday and Wednesday. There's not much support for thunderstorms so no risk for severe weather but pockets of heavy, steady rain are likely at points. We will likely see some dry time as the rain becomes scattered at times but expect consistent rain for much of Tuesday and Wednesday.

Some people are still searching for a decent rainfall and I think this will bring it. Both Tuesday and Wednesday could see up to 1.5" of rain meaning some spots could see as much as 3" of rain by the end of Wednesday. Even those on the lower side of the rain totals could get a soaking 1-2". 

The rain chance for Monday is just at night but then it's a near certainty for the rain on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday and Friday have started to trend dry so we've taken out the rain chances those days but Saturday brings another chance for showers and storms.
