    Some scattered showers are likely early Friday morning, and some scattered showers and storms are possible during the afternoon and evening hours. However, Storm Team4 says there will be plenty of dry time with clouds diminishing throughout the day.

    Anyone heading out of town Friday for Labor Day weekend travel may drive through some rain and heavier pockets of rain are possible, Storm Team4 said. Any severe weather is unlikely.
