FORECAST IN DETAIL
The unofficial first weekend of the summer kicks off in style today, with sunshine, 80-some degree temperatures and a hint of humidity. Though we can't rule out a storm today, the better storm chances arrive tomorrow and Monday -- probably late in the day. As the storm chances increase, temperatures will slowly decrease.
Today (Saturday): Though it will be the warmest of the three holiday weekend days, it will probably be the best for outdoor activities given the low chance of rain. Still, a few isolated storms could (25% chance) pop late this afternoon or early this evening, especially north of town (35% chance), as a weak cold front approaches. High temperatures will reach the low-to-mid 80s, Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Any storm activity should wind down before midnight. Skies will generally be partly cloudy, with lows 60-65 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Sunday): The bulk of the day should be ok for outdoor plans, but keep an eye to the sky (and on the radar) starting in the mid-to-late afternoon hours, when some showers and thunderstorms may (40%) develop. Prior to any storms, highs should reach the low 80s with a breeze out of the southwest at around 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Showers and thunderstorms are possible (50% chance) during the evening, followed by partly to mostly cloudy skies. Lows should drop down to near 60. Confidence: Medium-High
The front that may trigger storms late Sunday will likely stall out just to our south and east. That will cause some clouds to hang around Monday (Memorial Day) with the chance of some showers and storms firing up late in the afternoon especially south and east. Highs will range from the mid-70s to around 80, depending on the amount of sunshine we get. Confidence: Medium
Winds may shift around to out of the east on Tuesday. The resulting flow off the ocean will probably keep it cloudy and cool, with a slight (30%) chance of light rain. Highs may only be in the 60s to around 70. Confidence: Medium
