Labor day. I have been looking through many different weather models today and it is looking like I may have to keep in around a 20 to 30% chance for a scattered stray shower between Sunday and Monday. I don't look for anything big or a total wash out. However I have to keep this chance in.
Temperatures will again be in the middle to upper 70s for Sunday and Labor Day. Labor Day is looking closer to the low 80s at this time. Lows in the upper 50s on both Sunday and Labor Day.
Now with it being Labor Day Weekend I wanted to show a little something of what Labor Day is. Check it out below.
Labor Day,is a legal holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September in the United States, Puerto Rico, the Canal Zone, and the Virgin Islands. The celebration of Labor Day, in honor of the working class, it was first suggested by Peter J. McGuire, founder of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters. It was initiated in the U.S. in 1882 by the Knights of Labor, who held a large parade in New York City. In 1884 the group held a parade on the first Monday of September and passed a resolution to hold all future parades on that day and to designate the day as Labor Day. In March 1887, the first state law to declare the day a legal holiday was passed in Colorado, followed by New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. In 1894 the U.S. Congress made the day a legal holiday. Parades, and speeches by labor leaders and political figures, mark Labor Day celebrations. Labor Day is celebrated in Canada on the first Monday in September. The first parades and rallies to honor workers were held in 1872 in Ottawa and Toronto, and the September date was officially recognized by Parliament in 1894.
