FORECAST IN DETAIL
Clouds and the chance of afternoon showers mark an underwhelming start to the holiday weekend. On the bright side, we get this gloomy stuff out of our system today, paving the way for drier air and considerable sunshine tomorrow and Memorial Day. But it does turn hot with temperatures up around 90 with increasing humidity.
Today (Saturday): A stalled front over the region acts a focusing mechanism for occasional scattered showers today (40-50% chance). The highest chance of showers arrives late this afternoon when there could be a rumble of thunder. We won't see much sunshine, so highs hold mostly in the mid-to-upper 70s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: A chance of an isolated shower or thundershower through evening with partly to mostly cloudy skies through the overnight. Lows fall to 62-67 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): At least partial sunshine returns as weak high pressure moves over the region. Temperatures head sharply upwards, reaching the mid-to-upper 80s in the afternoon. This warmth will be accompanied by moderate humidity levels and light winds, from the northwest at around 5 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Despite mostly clear skies, the warm air mass over the region keeps temps on the mild side. Lows only dip to the mid-60s in the cooler suburbs to near 70 downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
It's going to be a hot Memorial Day. Flow from the south and sunny skies send the mercury up to around 90. An isolated thunderstorm can't be ruled out mainly west (20% chance) but most spots stay dry. Partly cloudy and stick Monday night, with lows 68-74 (suburbs to city). Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday will likely be very warm and humid. There's a solid chance (60%) of showers and thunderstorms as a cold front approaches the region. Highs should reach the upper 80s. Confidence: Medium
