Weather forecast: Warmer with sun on this Memorial Day

High pressure takes control from here. Expect mostly sunny skies with temperatures rising into the upper 60s and low 70s. It will be a great day to observe the Holiday with any BBQ’s or outdoor picnics good to go!

Diving into next week temperatures will gradually warm into the low to mid 70s with chances for more widespread showers not returning until late Wednesday into Thursday along a warm front.

We should get a decent stretch of dry before we get to that point with chances for an isolated shower or two Tuesday, and a bit more clouds than sun at times. With the added warmth and moisture around by the middle of next week chances for a thunderstorm within some of these showers cannot be ruled out. More warmth and energy will help fuel those possibilities, but we’ll have to wait and see what higher resolution models come up with before we iron out any details.

Despite the chances for rain it looks like the warmth will be sticking around into next weekend with highs rising into the 80s.
