Labor Day traditionally marks the end of summer, even though autumn doesn’t officially begin until September 21.

For those of you planning outdoor picnics and weekend barbecues, or even that last bit of travel, be weather-wary. The National Weather Service may just dampen your favorite activities.

The NWS is calling for a 50% chance of rain and thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday, with lower chances of rain on Friday and Monday. While the rain won’t be a drought-buster, it will help take the edge off for local lawns and gardens. The temperatures will drop into the upper 80s but will reach back to the low 90s by next week

The NWS forecast, beginning Friday morning, is:

Friday: Sunny, with a high near 92. Light southeast wind becoming south southwest 5 to 10 mph in the morning.

Friday Night: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 8 p.m. Partly cloudy, with a low around 69. South wind around 5 mph.

Saturday: A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 2 p.m. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 89. Southwest wind 5 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

Saturday Night: A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 70. South southwest wind 5 to 10 mph.

Sunday: A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Cloudy, with a high near 86. Southwest wind 5 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

Sunday Night: A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 70. South southwest wind 5 to 10 mph.

Labor Day: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly sunny, with a high near 91. Southwest wind 5 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

Monday Night: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly cloudy, with a low around 70.

The chance for rain and thunderstorms on Tuesday and Wednesday hovers between 20-30%.
