Updated Friday, May 22, 2015 at 5:49 PM...
The Memorial Day holiday weekend is off to a nice start. We saw sun for much of the day Friday, but a veil of high clouds moved in during the afternoon.
Look for high clouds to be the rule Friday night. It won't be quite as cool as lows drop into the middle 40s to lower 50s by Saturday morning.
Look for a partly sunny and mild Saturday. We'll see highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Clouds will thicken even more as we head into the latter half of the day.
Most of Saturday night looks dry, but we'll pick up a chance of showers and t-storms late Saturday night into Sunday morning as a storm system lifts toward the area from the southwest. Look for lows in the middle 50s.
Looking Ahead... That low pressure system will lift into the region for Sunday and Monday. We'll see showers and t-storms move into the area during the morning hours Sunday, the continue off and on through the day. Afternoon highs will top out around 70.
The threat for showers and t-storms will carry into Memorial Day. Some of today's model data indicates that the highest threat for rain will be during the morning, with a bit of a break developing Sunday afternoon. We'll have to wait and see. Warmer air will also invade the area beginning Sunday. The result will be highs in the middle to upper 70s. If we can get a break from the rain, we may see slightly higher readings.
For the most part, the severe weather threat for this weekend looks low thanks to a lot of cloud cover. We'll have to watch Monday for a threat of severe weather as some of the models are hinting that it is possible. However... until we see more consistent data, we'll keep the risk on the low side.
Have a fantastic Friday and a great weekend! -Cory Malles
