Expect showers and storms for the holiday weekend.

0

Temperatures through the afternoon have topped out back in the mid 80s with more sunshine. Dew points are rising thanks to southerly wind pulling in more moisture, so you’ve probably noticed it feels muggier once again. High pressure has been in control of our weather the past two days, but has shifted east. This evening, a few isolated showers and storms may pop up, but mainly we are expecting dry conditions. IT will be muggy and mild tonight with lows in the upper 60s and a chance for some patchy fog. We should mainly start Saturday off dry, but will see rain and storm chances picking up into the afternoon. Saturday looks to be the nest day this weekend to see activity. Highs Saturday will top out in the mid 80s. Highs Sunday will stay in the mid 80s with a chance for scattered showers and storms through late morning and into the afternoon. Drier conditions work in late. Memorial Day looks mainly dry, but there is a chance for isolated showers so keep rain gear handy for any outdoor celebrations. Highs will be in the mid 80s. Tuesday looks to be fairly quiet with a slight chance for isolated showers and a high in the mid 80s. All eyes are on Tropical Storm Alberto in the Gulf. It is expected to make landfall early next week bringing heavy rainfall to coastal states by Memorial Day. It could bring us extra activity by Wednesday.
