It will be a very warm, muggy Memorial Day, feeling a bit more like July 4th! If you are planning to head to a parade, have a picnic of just head to the backyard pool – conditions will be fine most of the day.
However a few storms could pop-up later this evening (best chance for storms is between 6-10 PM). There could be an early afternoon downpour out ahead of the main threat of storms later today.
Most of the day will just feature hazy sunshine and clouds with temperatures reaching near 90 degrees (the record high for today, May 28th is 89 degrees set back in 1991).
With dew points climbing into the middle 60′s, it will feel very sticky. The combination of the building heat and humidity along with a slow moving warm front will bring the threat of those late thunderstorms.
A few isolated storms may become strong and even severe – causing some isolated wind damage and dropping large hail in spots – so boaters, campers and beach-goers should stay close to safe harbor and safe shelter and also stay close to the forecast and public broadcasts for any warnings that may get issued. Any showers & storms will taper off and end later in the evening hours.
The same front will still be in our vicinity tomorrow. This means another mostly cloudy, warm and muggy day with more (mainly) afternoon showers and thundershowers. Indications are some of these storms could contain torrential rainfall and be very slow movers – a recipe for flash flooding!
Have a great Memorial Day.
