Keep an eye out for showers over the holiday

From staff reports

LOCK HAVEN — As millions are gearing up for the Labor Day weekend, many are wondering if the weather may foil their plans.

There is good news, and some not-so-good news, in the forecast for this community, where many are planning to check out the annual Lock Haven Jaycees Labor Day Regatta on the river. The weekend probably will not be rain-free, but the sun will shine on the festivities from time to time, according to both Accuweather and the National Weather Service.

Considerable cloudiness tomorrow morning will probably include occasional drizzle or rain. Later in the day, there may be a shower or two or a thunderstorm in spots. The chance of precipitation is 40%. The high temperatures will come close to 80 degrees, but the humid conditions will make it feel even hotter.

Look for the sun on Sunday, when morning clouds may give way to some sun, with a shower or thunderstorm still possible. Temperatures will be warmer with a high around 86 degrees. The humid conditions will continue and make things feel 10 degrees hotter.

Monday’s temperatures and conditions will be similar, but the sun may come out even more. An afternoon shower or thunderstorm still is not ruled out.

Lows each night will be near 70.

The weather for Tuesday and Wednesday will continue this trend.

No dramatically heavy downpours or bad storms are expected to cause adverse driving conditions in our area.

In fact, the holiday weekend should be mostly dry across the nation’s Northeast, but with more clouds than sun, according to Accuweather.

“Most of the holiday weekend will be dry from Philadelphia to New York City and Boston,” according to lead long-range meteorologist Paul Pastelok. “Don’t anticipate a bright blue sky, as it can be murky early in the weekend.”

The Northwest region of the nation will also have mostly dry weather, without a great deal of heat. However, showers and thunderstorms threaten holiday weekend plans in the Midwest, South and the Desert Southwest.
