Happy FRRRiday! It’s almost Labor Day weekend!

Spotty storms will redevelop later today mainly in western/southern areas. Eventually, the probabilities for afternoon thunderstorms will decline to negligible (5%-10% or less) by the end of the Labor Day weekend.

You can see that for yourself on the 8-day forecast.

Did you catch Tuesday’s sunset? It was at 8:01 PM. On Wednesday, the sunset slips to 7:59 PM and does not return to 8:00 PM until April of next year. The days are certainly getting darker faster, aren’t they?

Rainfall departures have been polar opposites. Look at the rainfall vs normal from JUNE 1 to JULY 15th and then compare JULY 15th to September 2nd:
