COLUMBIA — Columbia residents are likely to experience a rainy Labor Day, according to the National Weather Service in St. Louis.

Showers and thunderstorms are forecast to start Monday at 7 a.m. and end around noon, Jayson Gosselin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said. Additional showers and thunderstorms are likely to return in the afternoon and last until midnight.

There is a 70 percent chance of rain during the mid-morning hours, with further showers possible during the late afternoon, Gosselin said.

While Gosselin said the showers and thunderstorms on Monday morning are not expected to be severe, the storms starting in the mid-afternoon and lasting until early in the evening could be severe depending on cloud cover. Gosselin said strong winds and hail are also possible later in the day.

Temperatures Monday are expected to reach a high of 86 degrees and a low of 72, according to the National Weather Service.
