TODAY: The beginning of the Memorial Day weekend looks decent, but not as warm as the past few days. We'll see mostly cloudy to partly sunny skies with a chance of a few spotty showers in the afternoon. An isolated t-storm can't be ruled out as well. This is thanks to an upper-level wave to our southwest. Winds trend SE to SSE at 5-15 mph, but more E to NE lakeside. Highs will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s, but cooler lakeside.

TONIGHT: Skies remain mostly cloudy to cloudy with a slight chance of a few spotty showers. Winds will be light out of the E and SE. Lows fall back into the 50s, but lakeside areas will drop into the 40s.

SATURDAY: The upper-level wave will continue to track to the northeast. We'll see a chance of showers and thunderstorms once again, mainly in the afternoon and evening hours. Storms will remain well below severe levels. Winds trend E to SE at 5-15 mph. Highs are in the upper 60s to mid 70s, but 50s lakeside. Lows drop back into the 50s.

SUNDAY: We'll see a break from the precipitation during the morning, but models have pushed back the timing of the second round of rain now. We'll see a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon as a low pressure approaches and warm front pushes through. That chances increases to 70% into Sunday night. As of now, the chance for severe weather remains low, but not zero so that's something we'll be watching. Highs will get into the 70s, with some areas south around 80. with a S to SE wind at 5-10 mph. Lows drop back into the 50s to low 60s.

MEMORIAL DAY: It looks likely now rain and thunderstorms will continue throughout the day as the low slowly pushes over the area. I have increased the rain chances to 70% as a result. Highs will be in the 70s to near 80 south with a S wind at 5-10 mph. Lows remain warm, in the 50s to low 60s.

RAINFALL FORECAST: Through Noon Sunday, most areas will see 0.10"-0.25", but higher amounts are possible in heavier showers or thunderstorms. From Noon Sunday through Noon Tuesday, another 0.25"-1.00" will fall, but again higher are possible in heavier showers or thunderstorms.

TUESDAY: Skies will begin to clear into the afternoon hours as the system departs. Scattered showers will linger during the morning hours. Highs remain in the 70s with a S to SW wind. Lows drop back into the mid 40s to mid 50s.

WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY: The quiet and mild weather continues to round out the week, but a pop-up shower or thunderstorm can't be ruled out at times. Winds will be W to NW as well, so it'll actually be nice lakeside. Highs will be in the 70s to near 80 Wednesday and Thursday, but will cool into the 60s and 70s Friday as a cold front passes through.
