Play video Weather across the Northeast is detailed in the above video.

Rounds of showers and locally strong thunderstorms will affect the Boston area and much of New England through Labor Day with sporadic travel disruptions.

Despite the risk of storms most days this week, it will likely rain less than a quarter of the time for folks with outdoor plans.

Most of the showers and storms will not be intense, but can disturb activities, on several occasions over the islands, Cape Cod and the mainland.

People headed to the New England Arts and Crafts Festival will want to check interactive weather radar before venturing out.

Sporadic delays are possible from a few of the storms at Logan, along the Mass Pike, 128 and 495.

The end to the storminess around Boston will not coincide with the conclusion of this Labor Day weekend.

A couple of showers will still be around on Tuesday before the passage of a cold front allows dry and less humid air to filter in for Wednesday.
