Labor Day Weather

All in all the upcoming holiday weekend looks really nice for much of the lower 48 states.

In past years we've dealt with everything from record heat and severe storms to hurricanes over Labor Day.

This year it looks pretty quiet with the exception of unsettled weather in the Pacific Northwest as a large area of low pressure spins off the coast.

Some monsoonal moisture will spark afternoon showers and thunderstorms over the southern and central Rockies.

A few storms are also possible with daytime heating in the southeast and across the southern plains.

I hope you all get a chance to get out and enjoy the "unofficial end" to summer! The technical end of summer is still a few weeks away.

I will leave you with some really great pictures of hail fog courtesy of Storm Chaser Tony Laubach. Click here to read his blog and see some neat shots.

  1. Those photos from Laubach's blog are amazing.

    Chris, do you have any thoughts on the apparent El Nino pattern for this Winter?!
