Synopsis…

A departing upper low will continue to move east of the region this morning and one final disturbance will rotate through with clouds and a spotty shower possible early, before intervals of clouds and sunshine develop for our Memorial Day holiday as high pressure briefly builds into the region. Temperatures will once again rise above average into the lower 80’s with a bit of a breeze at times this afternoon.

A cold front will then drop south on Tuesday with another round of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon, some of which could end up on the stronger side with gusty winds, hail, and heavy rain. Quieter weather will then return into mid-week with cooler temperatures as the cold front settles south of the region and high pressure builds in.
