A very soggy setup for this Labor Day.
Off and on downpours will linger through this evening before winding down later.
Severe weather isn’t expected, but it will be wet.
Heavy rainfall will be likely especially in the mountains. This could lead to some flooding in the higher elevations.
Tuesday and the ensuing days will be drier with limited rain chances as the warmth returns.
Expect temperatures in the mid to upper 80s before a cool off later this weekend when the rain chances return.
