Top 5 Beaches With Great Labor Day Weather
Check out our list of hurricane-free beaches for Labor Day.
1. Outer Banks, North Carolina
With El Niño suppressing hurricane activity in the Atlantic this year, holiday beachgoers can be more confident in planning their final vacation of the summer to any of the East Coast beaches. The Outer Banks land at the top of our list because of a drier-than-normal forecast for the Labor Day weekend (Friday-Monday) and near-normal temperatures.
2. Virginia Beach, Virginia
3. South Padre Island, Texas
There will be no shortage of hot weather in this southern Texas vacation destination. Again, the presence of El Niño will decrease the chances of a pesky tropical system ruining vacation plans.
4. Daytona Beach, Florida
Not to sound like a broken record, but El Niño once again plays a big role on our list as we’re brave enough to throw in a Florida location, even though we are nearing the climatological peak of the Atlantic hurricane season! Daytona was picked over some of its counterparts because of a drier precipitation forecast; however, most Florida beaches shouldn’t be bad for the Labor Day weekend. We’re not ruling out the occasional shower or thunderstorm (this is, after all, Florida in summer), but a total washout is not expected.
