First Alert: Rain chances will start to pick up late Saturday into Sunday morning and a few showers could impact those early plans.

Although it won’t be raining all day and you should have plenty of time impact-free outdoors, you’ll want to keep the rain gear handy. Especially for those along and west of I-77.

You’ll likely have plenty of impact-free time outdoors but keep the rain gear and WBTV First Alert Weather App handy.

Rain coverage will pick up a bit more for your Labor Day. With mostly cloudy skies, highs will only top out in the low to mid 80s both Sunday and Monday, a trend that will continue through the rest of the seven-day forecast!
