Few brief showers Wednesday, plenty of heat


Good Wednesday morning, I'm meteorologist Bobby Deskins with a much quieter forecast.

Today will be a much quieter weather day with only a few afternoon showers as the remnants of Erika have finally moved out of the area and is falling apart over north Florida.  We'll be mostly sunny this morning then partly cloudy this afternoon.  We are back to the normal midday showers along the coast that shift inland after 2 p.m.  I do not expect much in the way of coverage today with rain chances only 20% at the coast, 30% east of I-75.

Labor Day Weekend looks like we are back to the typical summer weather, except we will see a few extra clouds and rain chances will jump up to about 40-50% each afternoon. Sunshine and heat most of the day, but late day storms are expected all three days. No one day looks like a washout or a day to need to "switch" plans. Just be ready for late afternoon and dinnertime storms each day, and have a safe Holiday Weekend.
