Cloudy holiday weekend expected, with a smattering of storms

Labor Day weekend will bring a nice long respite from work, but no relief from clouds or rain.

Today will be partly sunny, with highs in the lower 80s. Isolated showers will pop up late in the morning, then diminish, only to return overnight, according to the National Weather Service.

Saturday will see more precipitation, with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing after noon. Fog will blanket the state in the morning, and clouds will cover the sky throughout the Commonwealth. Temperatures will reach the mid-80s, and humidity levels will remain high, according to the weather service.

Sunday will mimic Saturday, with showers and thunderstorms developing late in the morning. Temperatures will remain in the mid-80s, and some sun could shine through in southern regions.

“It appears now that areas to the south of the Mass Pike could see more sun than clouds over the weekend,” said William Babcock, Weather Service meteorologist.

This weather pattern will push into Labor Day, though temperatures will moderate slightly into the low 80s. Clouds, isolated showers, and thunderstorms are possible throughout the day, according to the weather service.

“Sunday and Monday are expected to be more active for thunderstorms, but they are still possible each afternoon this weekend,” Babcock said.
