Triad -- This has been a very wet and unseasonably cool summer. We have a 10" rainfall surplus. Labor Day, the last "unofficial day of summer" will fittingly feature a 50 percent chance of thunderstorms. The temperature will be the strange part. We have only hit 90 degrees 11 times the whole summer, but we could do it Monday.
We are in a tropical air mass for a few more days. That will keep us warm, muggy and unsettled for a while longer. A cold front will move through Tuesday but we won't feel it's effects until Wednesday.
Here's how it will play out. Labor Day will be partly sunny with a high close to 90. There's a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. The best chance will be in the afternoon.
Tuesday will still have a 30 percent chance of showers as the front actually comes through. The temperatures won't break yet though. Highs will still reach the upper 80s.
Wednesday will bring the first signs of change. Highs will scale back to the mid 80s, where we will stay the rest of the week. There will be plenty of sun and low rain chances.
