Wet, gloomy start to Friday, but what’s ahead for Labor Day weekend?

Reporter: KC Sherman
Published: Updated:

Friday will feature another wet, gloomy day as abundant tropical moisture remains in place. Periods of rain and perhaps a storm or two will impact the morning commute with scattered storms expected for the afternoon.

With the added cloud cover today, most areas will only manage to reach into the 80s for highs.

Saturday may also feature some showers waking up to kick off the Labor Day Weekend. Otherwise, expect daily chances for scattered thunderstorms Saturday through Labor Day with highs in the low 90s. Neither day is looking like a wash-out, but make sure you stay weather aware if you do have outdoor plans!

Taking us to the tropics, we are tracking one area of disturbed weather. One that is currently positioned in Central America, that may be heading into the southern Gulf of Mexico / Bay of Campeche this weekend. Right now the chance of it becoming a tropical storm or tropical depression is 30%.

Elsewhere, we have Hurricane Larry, which is forecast to become a very strong, major hurricane, but all indications from computer models currently show it will stay far offshore from the United States.
