Overcast Labor Day with mild temps

Posted at 4:21 AM, Sep 03, 2018

For those planning to celebrate Labor Day at the beach, expect mild and cloudy conditions at the coast. 

A weak trough of low pressure will keep temperatures relatively mild and consistent through the first part of the work week. 

The gusty, northwesterly winds we had last week and now decreasing to 5-15 mph. The lack of strong wind allows the marine layer to deepen. We may even see some drizzle at the coast this morning and certainly dense fog and low clouds pushing into the coastal valleys and inland locations. 

Daytime highs for Labor Day will be in the mid-60s to low 70s at the coast, upper 70s for coastal valleys and 80s to low 90s for inland locations. 

A building ridge of high pressure will increase temperatures toward the end of the work week. A passing trough over the weekend may drop temps by a few degrees but overall, temperatures will be generally consistent over the next seven days.
