It’s hard to believe summer is winding down! The midpoint of summer is August 7th, and we’re now looking to Labor Day. While the last full day of summer is officially September 21st (the first day of fall is Thursday, September 22nd), Labor Day is considered the “unofficial” last weekend of the season. It’s a federal holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September in both the United States and Canada. In 2021 Labor Day (or Labour Day in Canada) is Monday, September 6th.
If you’re planning a family road trip, picnic, cookout, or just hoping to get those last beach days in, you’ll need to know the weather!
