Other than some increased afternoon cloudiness, mainly over southeastern sections of the area, today continued our stretch of near-perfect conditions. Plentiful sunshine has helped most spots reach highs from the mid 70s to near 80 and daytime humidity levels remain delightfully non-existent. Whether you are headed out of town for the long holiday weekend or just spending some time outside, local weather promises to cooperate.

Through Tonight: Following a nice evening with sunset temperatures falling through the low 70s, another very pleasant if not somewhat cool night is upcoming. Under mostly clear skies, lows should range from the mid-50s to lower 60s.

Tomorrow (Friday): For those still around town, Friday kicks off the holiday weekend right. Look for lots of sun, with perhaps some afternoon clouds, and highs rising to the low-and-mid 80s.

Tropics: As Greg Postel alluded to yesterday, Erika is fighting for life. The storm is currently threatening Puerto Rico and surrounding islands, mainly with a heavy rain threat, but tropical storm warnings remain in effect. Winds are still sustained at 40 mph though there are indications that the storm will weaken back into a tropical wave soon. It is possible, though not extremely likely, that Erika could redevelop over the coming days.

My impression of Labor Day weekends-past is that it is usually miserable - rain, wind, chilly. For example, Ocean City would promote some Labor Day event to draw people down to the shore, but the result was always video of large tents blowing over and people running for cover through a down pour. Is my memory correct? Should we consider ourselves especially fortunate this year with the current pefect forecast?
