From our partners at WAND TV…As a cold front inches closer from the west we will hold onto scattered shower/storm chances through the day here on Labor Day.

Some of the storms will have the potential to be strong to severe in the afternoon and evening with heavy rain, gusty winds and large hail all possible.

High pressure will settle in by mid-week bringing plenty of sun and highs in the upper 80’s.
