Afternoon Rain Chances in "Play" Over Labor Day Weekend

The start of college football will have many fans keeping an eye on the sky Saturday, with teams across the state playing their home openers. Here’s a day-by-day breakdown of what you can expect statewide should you be outdoors for Labor Day weekend.



Wider precipitation coverage is possible across the Panhandle and in North Florida after 5 pm, augmented by a sea breeze merger. Heaviest storms will be oriented NW-SE across the north-central part of the state, with most rain falling along and west of a line traced by I-75 and Florida’s Turnpike. Highs will be in the upper 80's and low 90's.



Elevated afternoon rain chances are possible after 2 pm, especially along and west of I-75. High temperatures will come down slightly and be in the upper 80's, thanks to more widespread cloud coverage.



An upper-level low pressure will continue to bring the possibility of earlier thunderstorms across the Panhandle, while late-day scattered thunderstorms are expected across the rest of Florida, especially away from the coasts.
