The weather will mostly cooperate for Labor Day weekend in Philly and the Jersey Shore. There's a chance of rain on Sunday and Monday, but the rest of the weekend will be dry. In the city, temperatures will be in the 90s. At the shore, it will be in the 80s. Pictured above is the promenade in Brigantine.

How is it Labor Day weekend already? Time flies and it feels like it's just getting faster as it goes on. It's another holiday weekend that is heavily dependent on the weather.

There's some good news and bad news. The good? It will be dry for the most part – Friday looks great and Saturday will be fine. There's a chance for showers and storms on Sunday and Monday, but neither day will be washout. Dew points will be on the rise, so humidity will increase later in the weekend. That means the comfort factor will be falling.
