Beach Forecast 4Day

By Geoff Bansen

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – In honor of Labor Day weekend, this blog is going to be short and sweet.

Friday will be sunny and comfortably warm in the low 80s with low humidity.

A few more clouds Saturday but still a nice day as temperatures increase a few degrees.

Sunday and Monday will be hot and humid, with a chance of a shower or thunderstorm during the day. It doesn’t look like either day will be a washout, so don’t cancel any plans! Just keep an eye to the sky.

Rip Currents are on the decline but seas will continue to be rough today, so continue to use caution.

Have a great Labor Day weekend!

Today’s Highs:

Philly – 81
Shore – 77
Poconos – 72

On this date in weather history…

1986 – The temperature at PHL bottomed out at 44 degrees, the lowest August reading since
official records began in 1870.
1988 – Tropical storm Chris moved into SC, then recurved north and moved through southeastern PA and NJ as a
depression. However, the remnants of Chris drenched eastern PA with up to 5 1/2″ of rain, and produced high winds which gusted to 90 mph.
2005 – Hurricane Katrina made its second landfall in southeastern Louisiana, as a category 3 storm. The rest is history. Extreme flooding due to storm surge occurred, devastating the city of New Orleans and surrounding areas. The storm caused billions of dollars in damage, and over 1800 casualties in the U.S.
