Forecast Discussion:

A warm and mostly dry evening is in store. I say mostly because there could be a few isolated showers hanging around through sunset. After then any showers will end. It will remain mild tonight with lows in the 60s.

Saturday will remain unseasonably hot. Humidity is expected to increase and for those that do not enjoy the heat/humidity, you’ll be in for an uncomfortable stretch of days. A ridge of high pressure will establish itself through this time frame. With the high pressure slowly strengthening, it is going to be hard for any widespread shower and storm activity to develop. Any triggering mechanism strong enough to cause rain and thunder still appears to be lacking. I am keeping precipitation chances low due to this. However, because of the increased heat/humidity, I am leaving a 30% chance of some isolated afternoon/evening showers or storms in the forecast for Saturday. I expect ample dry time, especially early in the day and the overnight hours. Overnight lows Thursday through Saturday will be in the low to mid 60s.

Sunday will remain hot and muggy with a 60% chance of a few afternoon and evening showers or storms. Highs will be in the mid 80s. Memorial Day looks mostly cloudy and I’ve increased the chance of rain and some storms to 60%. I’m keeping temperatures around 80 Monday through Wednesday. Some sunshine is possible Tuesday and Wednesday.
