Get ready to crank up the heat for the start of your Labor Day celebrations. The high for today is 89°F with mostly clear skies due to a high pressure sitting right over the Tennessee Valley. Southwesterly winds are going to keep most of the day’s temperatures in the 80’s until right after sunset, which is when temperatures will start to decrease. Upstream convection may trigger some high clouds to be visible over the area but the day will remain mostly clear. The low for tonight is 64°F. Rain stays to the north for the day so definitely take advantage of that as you head outdoors for your Labor Day celebrations.
The ECMWF Hi-Res numerical model shows some snow possible for the rocky mountains out west of us. This is due to a dip in the jet stream, causing a large cool down in temperatures as we head out of the summer season for that region. We’ll have to keep a close eye on how that jet stream develops as it moves closer to our region to see if we’ll get to experience that dip in temperatures as well.
