HOLIDAY WEEKEND WEATHER: Starts hot and humid, but second half gets cool and unsettled

It’s going to feel like summer for the start of the Labor Day Weekend. Whether you live in Western New York or Central New York temperatures will soar into the mid-to-upper 80s.

High pressure to the east will help pump in some summer warmth into Upstate New York, according to the National Weather Service. They say this will likely be the warmest weather in the forecast for the next 5-7 days.

Things change for the second half of the holiday weekend with a complex scenario playing out to support an increased risk for shower and thunderstorm development.

Most of that activity should hold off until the afternoon or early evening hours on Sunday. However, it’s looking less likely now that Sunday remains entirely dry.

By Monday night, some parts of Western New York or the Finger Lakes could see as much as two inches of rain. Temperatures will cool off significantly with daytime highs only topping out in the low-70s both days.
