Isolated storms this Memorial Day
By the afternoon this memorial day, expect some isolated showers and thunderstorms with a mix of clouds and sunshine. It looks like we'll avoid temperatures in the 90s today throughout the week, thanks to the anticipated rain and cloud cover. It will still be warm though. Through most of the week, expect temperatures in the afternoon to reach the mid 80s with lots of sticky humidity. Overnight lows may briefly drop into the 60s somenights, but will likely be in the low 70s most nights. Some patchy fog will be possible in the mornings also.
It looks like another front is coming through next weekend, however we are reaching that point of the year where cold fronts won't bring us too much relief.
Another note, Thursday is the beginning of hurricane season. We aren't quite yet in the summer season, but with high humidity, temperatures in the 90s, and hurricane season we are certainly close enough.
