Happy Labor Day!

• Hurricane Hermine left its mark on the Tampa Bay area last week, causing widespread flooding that still lingers in parts of the Tampa Bay region. But as Hermine moves further away, the local weather pattern is returning to the usual late-summer routine. That means you can expect a dry Labor Day morning with moderate temperatures, according to 10Weather WTSP. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms will pass through. Highs will climb back into the low 90s.

• Speaking of Hermine, Gov. Rick Scott toured several hard-hit parts of Pasco County on Sunday to learn more about the damage and to speak with residents. Read about his visit here.

• For Labor Day, enjoy a few videos of Tampa Bay's amazing jobs, including tales of a Monster Jam technician, a mermaid and a gator-catcher. Check them out here.

• Here are the top things to do this week in Tampa Bay, including Puff Daddy bringing a lineup of '90s favorites to the Bad Boy Reunion Tour and murals springing up all over St. Petersburg.
