A cold front will sweep through late this evening, ending any threat for rain or storms by midnight. The humidity will begin to drop as well. The gusty winds should begin to subside overnight, and will continue to drop over the course of Labor Day. Sustained speeds by Monday afternoon should be around 10 mph or less out of a northerly direction. Labor Day will be cooler, but mostly dry with highs in the mid 60s. Rain showers could develop west of the Fox Valley by the evening, and rain will become more widespread through the night.

Fortunately, the heaviest rain and coolest weather of the week will hold off until after Labor Day. Tuesday and Wednesday will be downright COLD for early September! Highs will likely stay in the mid 50s... and we’ll be close to setting the all-time records for the coolest afternoon highs on Sept. 8-9. Periods of soaking rain can be expected mid-week along with strong northeast winds. The prolonged northeast breeze may lead to flooding along the Lower Bay... and rivers emptying into the Bay. That powerful system begins to lose its grip on the area Thursday, and temperatures should moderate for next weekend. Highs will return to the upper 60s, which is still a few degrees below average for the second week of September.
