A Pleasant Labor Day Weekend

High pressure will build over the Southwest through the weekend starting a warming trend into Sunday for the Pacific Northwest. The warm-up is short-lived, however, as a disturbance rotating in the Gulf of Alaska approaches on Labor Day. This system will run into the ridge and weaken as it moves inland bringing only a slight chance for showers on Labor Day and slight chance for isolated thunderstorms on the east side, mainly in Lake and Modoc counties. Any shower and thunderstorm activity will be isolated, so if you’re headed outdoors for the long weekend, you’re plans won’t be spoiled you may just run into a few sprinkles on your way home Monday. Overall a beautiful Labor Day weekend is shaping up across our area.

While the cut-off low will only bring a slight chance for isolated activity, it will act to cool temperatures into next week for all areas. But, since temperatures are warming into this weekend, the cool down will only drop highs back to normal and just below, much like what we saw earlier this week.

The football forecast for the Game of the Week in Phoenix and even Autzen and Reser Stadiums tomorrow will be dry and seasonably warm. Good luck to all your teams this year! Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
