Keep umbrellas handy later today. We are expecting some passing showers and thunderstorms on this Saturday, especially by afternoon and evening. We have lots of moisture in place, and a disturbance will ride to the northeast near us... so we could see a couple of heavy downpours. Rain amounts will be anywhere from .25 to 2 inches for most spots, with some isolated higher amounts possible.

Rain chances stay near 60% for Saturday afternoon, then drop to 40% for 6pm through 10pm. Overnight rain chances will drop further to about 20%, as the disturbance moves away from us.

Sunday and Labor Day will be partly cloudy, hot and drier. We'll keep a 30% chance for a few spotty showers or thunderstorms in the afternoons. Highs will return to near 92° with heat index values 95-105°. Our atmosphere will still be very moist, so a heavy downpour will be possible.
