The Labor Day weekend is just about here and the weather looks great. We’ll have plenty of sunshine through Monday, the humidity will be low, the wind will be light, and high temperatures will be in the 80s Saturday and Sunday, warming into the lower 90s on Monday.
When I was a kid we would go camping over Labor Day weekend, and I’m sure a few of you will be doing the same thing. Enjoy the perfect weather.
One year, 1978, I remember being out camping with several camping families. We did all the fun camping things like boating, fishing, swimming, riding bikes, and eating lots of goodies. I also remember gathering around a black and white portable TV so we could watch Nebraska play Alabama in Alabama on Saturday night. It was a tough game and Nebraska lost 20-3. It was a revenge game for Bama because Nebraska beat them the year before in an upset.
I’m not much of a camper anymore, but I still love my college football. You can bet by the time the games come on tomorrow I’ll be in my favorite chair, taking in all the college action. Of course that means I’ll need to get my chores done early tomorrow, but that’s OK.
Speaking of football, the forecast looks good for the OU game in Norman, while OSU may deal with a few showers and storms for their game at Georgia.
Our chances for showers and storms will increase next week as moisture returns from the Gulf of Mexico. A storm system will move in from the west and I expect a chance of storms as early as Tuesday, but more likely later in the week.
I’ll be working Sunday and Monday, so tune into Eyewitness News 5 throughout the weekend for all of the latest.
Have a great weekend and be safe.
