More sunshine ahead, hotter for Labor Day weekend

Saturday, 02 Sep, 2017

As the low moves north, a push of somewhat drier air will move south into Alabama and Georgia, giving us more pleasant mornings and lower humidity starting Saturday.

I'll have the latest on today's rain, your Labor Day Weekend travel forecast, and a look ahead to our next rain chance and cool down, coming up on KSN News at Noon! Temperatures will reach the low to mid 80s in Atlanta Saturday afternoon.

The Labor Day weekend is upon us.

Lows will be in the 60s.

Tomorrow while an early morning shower can't be completely ruled out (mainly before 9am) we'll have decreasing clouds in the morning with more sun in the afternoon and highs in the mid 80s.

THURSDAY: There will be a 40 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms.

Under clear skies overnight, temperatures tumble quickly to the 40s. At this time it appears much of Saturday through at least Sunday Morning will feature plenty of clouds, showers and drizzle, and cool temps (similar to Tuesday). North northwest wind 6 to 15 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 23 miles per hour.

Monday Night: A 30 percent chance of showers. With perhaps some sunshine returning later Sunday, high temps may warm back into the mid 70s.
