Showers Today and a Preview of Memorial Day Weekend


Cool & Showers Today, Maybe a Thunderstorm or Two

Some showers have already moved through this morning and more showers are on the way. Today will be one of those dreary, cool, keep the umbrella handy kind of days.

Showers are expected to hang around for the majority of the day.

In addition, we could see a few thunderstorms through the day, especially this afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has the “Marginal Risk” category for severe weather sitting just to the east of our counties. While severe weather is not anticipated, we may need to keep an eye on any thunderstorms that develop this afternoon. Wind would be the primary concern with any strong thunderstorms we could see.

Scattered showers may stick around into the evening. If you have any outdoor plans tonight, bring the umbrella.

For tomorrow, we could have some light showers linger through the AM hours. Showers should clear by the afternoon to leave us with mostly cloudy skies for the majority of the day.

Friday into Memorial Day Weekend

For those with plans to start the long weekend early, Friday looks to be a fantastic day. Highs will climb back into the summer-like 80s with sunny skies throughout the day.

While this weekend shouldn’t be a complete washout, we could see rain on Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday’s chances are a bit more wishy washy with some models showing a decent amount of rainfall (Euro) and others keeping us dry (GFS). If you have outdoor plans, go ahead and start thinking about a rain plan. Since the models are so uncertain, plan for the rain, but hope that the GFS (no rain) solution plays out.

Saturday night into Sunday appears to have the “better” chance for showers. Both the GFS and Euro show us receiving rainfall on Sunday.

Another note to add about Sunday is that we will need to keep an eye on it. Models currently show some instability, which could bring in some severe weather talk. Sunday is still far enough away that there is no way to nail down any details, but just know that it could rain and we will need to keep a close eye on it between now and then.
