Labor Day Weekend Outlook: Hot With Rain Chances Returning

It's the unofficial end to summer, but the heat continues this holiday weekend with rain chances returning Sunday

Although the calendar says September, it will continue to feel more like mid-August on Saturday. Highs will once again be in the upper 90s, with feels-like temperatures between 100 to 104.

Saturday will remain hot and dry, but a cold front will drop in from Oklahoma on Sunday morning with increasing rain and storm chances Sunday morning and afternoon.

Severe weather is not expected, but any storms that develop will be capable of gusty winds and lightning. If you have outdoor plans, be prepared to shelter if lightning is occurring.

Monday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with the best chance of rain over Central Texas. No single day will be a washout this holiday weekend. Daytime highs on Labor Day Monday will be near normal for early September with highs in the upper 80s to mid-90s.
