Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast

So far, so dry on this holiday weekend. But a weak cold front pushing through on Monday could spark a few showers and thunderstorms for Labor Day.

Right now, it does look like most of us will stay dry. However we are giving it about a 20% chance for a shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon and evening.

It will be a mild Monday with high temperatures in the low-to-mid 80s.

Behind that cold front, temperatures will actually warm up! Expect highs in the upper 80s on Tuesday and near 90° on Wednesday.

A second cold front will fizzle before it arrives. But a third, more powerful cold front will usher in milder weather and bring us a better chance for showers and thunderstorms late Wednesday and into Thursday.

Behind that cold front expect high temperatures back down into the upper 70s and lower 80s on Thursday and Friday, before we warm back up by next weekend.
