ATLANTA, Ga. -

 RAIN CHANCES INCREASE FOR THE START OF THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND

SATURDAY:  Happy Labor Day Weekend!  We finally made it, and we're looking at a few changes in our weather pattern.  First of all, expect heat and humidity all weekend.  We've got a southwesterly flow today, which will draw in not only heat, but plenty of humidity.  And as the moisture content increases, so does our chance for rain.  For Saturday, expect highs near 90 degrees.  We might not quite make it to the 90 mark, though, due to an increase in cloud cover limiting our solar heating.  By the afternoon, watch for a chance for showers and storms.  Coverage will be decent, with about a 40%-50% chance to see some rain.  If you do happen to be caught under a thunderstorm, rain could be heavy for at least a brief period of time.  The showers will dissipate overnight, with skies remaining mainly cloudy and lows dropping to near 70 degrees.

SUNDAY:  Sunday will be very similar to Saturday, with a southwesterly flow keeping humidity high and allowing temperatures to climb to around 90 degrees.  Again, we'll see a chance for some thunderstorms in the afternoon, although the chance will be just a touch lower.  That said, with some drying in parts of the atmosphere, storms that do develop could contain some gusty winds.  Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies, becoming mainly clear overnight into Labor Day.

LABOR DAY: Your Labor Day Monday will be a hot one, with mainly sunny skies and highs again near 90 degrees.  The chance for showers/storms decreases on Monday, so most of us will likely remain dry.  That said, there could be some pop-up afternoon storms with brief heavy rain and lightning.
