Showers for Part of Sunday, Much Warmer Labor Day

A much more mild and closer to normal night in terms of temperatures.

Saturday, the forecast calls for a mostly sunny day with highs in the low 70s. There's a high risk for rip currents at south facing Atlantic beaches, including those in New York City.

It's not the best start to the Labor Day weekend - often seen as the end of the summer - but we should eventually see the sun, according to the latest forecast from the National Weather Service.

Though Monday remains hot, a cold front will begin to drop south across the area later in the day.

Next week another chance of rain arrives Tuesday evening as a rather potent cold front moves into and through North Texas.

Highs Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to only be in the 70s. Winds: Southeast 3-7 miles per hour, gusting to 15 miles per hour.

Tonight: Skies will stay clear through the overnight as we cool down into the mid and upper 60s overnight. Northwest winds 5 to 15 miles per hour. Temperatures will climb quickly with that ample sunshine as highs push up into the low 90s this afternoon with heat index values in the mid 90s.

Labor Day will be sunny with a high near 82 and a low around 63.

SATURDAY: Sunny and warm. Wind: N/NE 10-15 miles per hour. Winds will stay on the light side through the afternoon, mainly out of the south-southeast around 5 to 10 miles per hour.

Monday night: Mostly clear with a low around 68. Everyone should be sunny by the afternoon.

Thursday night: Mostly clear. In the early morning, some places, like Norwood and Orange, may even reach the upper 30s, but the lows in those MA towns will certainly not be what most places see. High pressure building down from the northwest will bring a fair amount of sunshine for Friday, but it will also lead to a north breeze helping to drive the cool air in across the area.

Tuesday: A 30 percent chance of showers, mainly before 1 pm.
