Weather Blog

Hit-or-miss showers and storms will be around this evening with coverage diminishing after sunset. 

  • This Evening: Mild and humid. (30%) shower/storm chance early. Mainly cloudy. Patchy fog forms overnight in spots. Low: 65°. 
  • Monday (Memorial Day): (40%) shower/storm chance, mainly late. Mix of sun and clouds. High: 86°. 
  • Tuesday: Breaks of sun. Warm. (40%) chance for a few showers/storms late. High: 83°. 

Overnight low temperatures will stay mild in the mid 60s with partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies. A few areas of dense patchy fog could develop and linger into early Monday morning. 

It will be hot again for Memorial Day with highs near 86 degrees. Cloud cover looks a little thicker for Monday and there is a 40% chance for showers and storms, mainly late. Again, be alert for a few heavy downpours and an isolated stronger storm. Memorial Day is not a wash-out by any means, but just have a plan in case a storm pops up over your area!

Rain chances are slightly less Tuesday through Thursday with Wednesday looking like our driest day this week. Highs mid-week will be in the low to mid 80s.

By Friday and Saturday rain coverage increases slightly and highs rebound into the mid 80s with overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s! The long-term trend is hinting at a hot start to June!
