While the absolute best weather of the long weekend might be behind us, Sunday is still a great early September day.

An isolated afternoon shower or thunderstorm is possible but, in between, the weather will still be nice with highs in the mid-80s.

Beaches will be in the mid and upper 70s to near 80 degrees, making it a great destination as well. It's a great day for grilling or other events such as the Rhythm & Roots Festival.

Labor Day and Tuesday are far more unsettled with showers, periods of rain, some fog, and cooler temperatures.

A cold front is slowly approaching and will gradually increase our humidity, cloud cover, and shower chances throughout Sunday.

Dew points hover in the mid-60s, making for a sticky, and at times muggy, feel to the day.

It will still be rather humid on Monday and Tuesday, but lower air temperatures due to rain will mask it.

Any shower activity we get Sunday afternoon and evening will be isolated and won't impact all towns. That's good for outdoor plans.

By Monday morning, shower coverage will increase.

Even so, it may not rain all day long in all places.

When it won't be raining though, it will be a dreary day with clouds, some fog, and cooler-than-average temperatures.

A wave of low pressure moves along the stalled cold front, keeping the chance for rain into the evening of Labor Day and likely for much of Tuesday as well.

Total rainfall will vary depending on the heaviest downpours and the position of the low, but a middle point of 0.5 inches is likely.

Some may exceed an inch while others fall short.

There's still time for this to shift, so stick with Storm Team 10 for your updated forecast and enjoy the rest of the long weekend.
