SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lo 57.

MONDAY: Partly Cloudy, Stray Shower. Hi 85.

Temperatures will gradually warm from around 80 early in the week into the 90s by the turn of the weekend. Mostly dry conditions and plentiful sunshine will contribute to this robust regime of warmth.

Memorial Day Monday will still be a great day for outdoor services and events. A few clouds in our southern counties may keep temperatures a degree or two shy of 80 but to the north a bit of sun will warm us into the mid 80s. There is an outside chance for some scattered showers brushing the southern border of our viewing area, however the vast majority of us will remain dry Monday.

Temperatures continue to rise this coming week, perhaps reaching the 90s by Friday. Other than the showers to our south, very little rain is in the forecast as our rainfall deficit continues to grow, keeping us on track for one of the driest Mays on record!
