Labor Day forecast: hot and humid with scattered afternoon storms

Published: Updated:

As we head through Labor Day, expect another round of afternoon showers and storms. The weather will be mild, yet muggy, to start the morning under partly cloudy skies. Most areas will remain dry, with the exception of spots near Lake Okeechobee.

By lunchtime, a few areas of rain will be possible. However, the majority of the rain and storms come through later in the afternoon.

First areas to see rain will be inland, especially east of I-75. Eventually, they will move closer to our coastline around 6 p.m.

During the later afternoon and early evening, storms will become more numerous near the coast as a sea breeze merger occurs. This will allow for heavy rain, frequent lightning, and strong storms possible.

Expect a few storms to linger into the evening. Most areas should clear by midnight.

Stay tuned to the Weather Authority for your local forecast each and every day! Happy Labor Day!
