Labor Day weekend remains wet for central Florida

Storms likely Sunday afternoon


ORLANDO, Fla. – Central Florida's Labor day weekend will continue to be a wash thanks to a weak onshore flow that continues all thanks to a ridge of high pressure to our north.

For your Labor Day on Monday, a persistent area of low pressure over the Gulf will keep our atmosphere very unstable, continuing the high chance of showers and storms through the afternoon and early evening hours.

Highs through the rest of the holiday weekend will remain near normal in the low 90s, with feels-like temperatures nearing the triple digits before the rain rolls in.

Tropical Update: Tropical Storm Grace has sustained winds of 50 mph, as it tracks towards the West at 15 mph. The official forecast cone from the National Hurricane Center calls for Grace to continue on the westward track as it gradually strengthens into a stronger tropical storm. As Grace nears the Leeward Islands, models are showing stronger vertical wind shear, limiting further strengthening. Central Floridians still have plenty of time to watch the progression of Grace over the coming week.
