Showers and thunderstorms will continue to threaten to interfere with outdoor plans around Pittsburgh through the remainder of this Labor Day holiday weekend.

The continued presence of humidity will set the stage for the stormy weather.

Clouds will hold temperatures to the upper 70s on Sunday before temperatures rebound to the lower 80s on Labor Day.

Sunday will likely be the most active day of the holiday weekend.

Those with picnics, parades or other outdoor activities will experience disruptions if a shower or thunderstorm arrives at an inopportune time.
