After a lovely Labor Day Weekend with sunny skies and seasonal temperatures, rain will return to the area just in time for the start of the semester.

The remnants of what was once Hurricane Isaac, which brought over a foot of rain and a damaging storm surge to southeastern Louisiana and Mississippi last week, will finally make it to the Northeast. While we won’t get anything like the 20 inches of rain New Orleans received from Isaac, the tropical moisture interacting with an existing trough will bring the potential for rain showers this afternoon through tomorrow.

While some showers are possible this afternoon, it looks like the bulk of the rain will hold off until tonight. Rain showers, which may be heavy at times, are likely to be in the area through tomorrow evening, so you definitely want to consider bringing an umbrella with you as you head to your first classes tomorrow morning!
