Brighter and much warmer for Memorial Day!

Top Stories

Weather turns warm but unsettled again later this week...

OVERNIGHT: Slow Clearing, Stray Shower Possible, Cool. Lo 47. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.

MEMORIAL DAY: Drier with Warmer Conditions. Hi 74. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: Mostly Cloudy. Hi 78. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

There can be a lingering shower through the early overnight, but rain for the most part has ended as the stubborn low is pulling away. This means clouds will slowly clear out overnight which will allow temperatures to dip into the 40s by early Monday morning. Memorial Day will feature lots of sunshine though which will help bounce temperatures back into the mid-70s! Weather looks good for outdoor plans aside from a 10-15 mph breeze out of the northwest.

Abundant cloud cover will return for Tuesday as a weak disturbance moves through the Great Lakes, but no rain is expected. These clouds will be higher up into the atmosphere so temperatures should have no issues rebounding into the upper 70s.

As we head into Wednesday and beyond, a more typical early summer like pattern will take hold. A trough will settle into the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley starting Thursday. This will pump warmth and humidity northward, but also increase daily storm chances. The greatest chance for rain this week appears to be Thursday when a stronger disturbance will cross. We may have to watch for strong storms as faster jet winds moves in aloft. More storms are expected Friday, with only a spotty storm chance for next weekend as a ridge begins to take hold of the northeast. Highs will bounce back to near 80 by mid-week, with a recovery into the mid-80s expected by next weekend!

Going forward, more consistent summer heat can be expected as we head through the first half of June.
