For many folks this will be the last chance to hit the beach, pool or bay this Summer but will the weather cooperate?

The Labor Day weekend has begun ...the traditional end of Summer and perhaps the last chance for many to enjoy a few days by the beach, bay or pool. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Mother Nature will provide us with the best weather for the entire holiday weekend.

If you are heading to the mid Atlantic Beaches expect partly cloudy skies Saturday with daytime highs in the middle to upper 80s.  Sunday may begin with sunshine however clouds may arrive during the afternoon with a 30% chance of showers and storms  by evening.  Water temperatures remain very mild in the mid 70s. Showers and thunderstorms now seem more likely during the day on Monday.

If your travels take you to Virginia Beach or the Outer Banks you can expect similar conditions as a frontal boundary will stall near by on Sunday.  This means that Saturday will also be the best of the three days this weekend with highs in the middle to upper 80s.  It appears that on Sunday the sunshine will also give way to added clouds and the threat of scattered thundershowers.There too, rain chances will increase on Monday.

In summary,for the beaches...the best beach day will be Saturday, Sunday will be pretty good at the Maryland/Delaware Beaches and Monday may wind up as a cloudy and probably wet day at all the beaches./
