Threat of rain increases for Saturday

• Aug 31, 2018 at 6:00 AM

The threat of rain on Saturday has increased to 40 percent.

That’s not welcomed news for Milan or New London, where the respective Melon Festival and Firelands Labor Day Festival will be taking place.

It’s also not welcomed news for Norwalk, where numerous residents will be participating in the citywide garage sale.

There remains a 30-percent chance of rain Sunday and Monday, which is Labor Day. That could put a damper on backyard activities planned for those days.

A storm front on Wednesday brought showers that day and cooler weather on Thursday.

After that respite from the heat experienced earlier in the week, however, the temperature will begin rising again. The respective highs for Saturday through Monday are 85, 87 and 89. The projected highs Tuesday and Wednesday are 88.

Today, the sun will rise at 6:56:47 a.m. and set at 8:04:14 p.m.

On Saturday, the sun will rise at 6:57:47 a.m. and set at 8:02:35 p.m.
