Friday morning starts with temperatures in the mid 70s under mainly clear skies. Although Labor Day weekend is a time of year we are usually seeing plenty of afternoon storms and a busy tropics, we have some good weather in the forecast this year.

Today through Monday, there will be only isolated showers and storms each day. With breezes coming from the southwest for the next few days, there will be a couple of showers to wash ashore each morning. Then those rain chances head inland each afternoon with the sea breeze.

Coverage of rain will be much lower than typical for this time of year. Expect about 20-to 30 percent of the area to see rain today and Saturday. Then, coverage on Sunday and Monday will be up to 30 to 40 percent. Otherwise, there will be a good amount of sunshine each day.
