May 26, 2016 Updated: 2:15 AM

Showers have ended for now (there are more off to our west) and now locally dense fog has developed. Winds will be light and with all the fresh moisture out there, the fog will be sticking around through the morning. Temperatures remain mild, in the 50s and 60s. We'll be watching the line of storms moving into the area early this morning which could bring another round of heavy rain, but the severe threat looks to stay south of us.

The rest of Thursday will be quieter and very summer-like. Any clouds early will lead to plenty of sunshine. The atmosphere will continue to be warm, so temperatures will heat up quickly and we look to top out in the mid 80s later in the day. An isolated t-storm can't be ruled out but most places will stay dry.. and it will remain a bit humid.

The weather then turns more active again moving into Friday and the start of the long, holiday weekend. The next low and warm front will be sliding up from the south, very similar to this latest system. Scattered showers and storms are likely to arrive on Friday, again with a heavy rain and low end severe threat. Temperatures look to reach near 80 before this arrives. This system will be slower to exit however, so chances will linger into Saturday. This looks to be a day with scattered showers and storms, so there will be some dry times as well. Highs will be in the 70's.

If you are hoping to spend some time outside to enjoy our late May weather this holiday weekend, all is not lost. Chances for storms do carry through Sunday and Monday, but as it looks now, much of both days should be dry. A small chance of thunderstorms for the late afternoon and evening hours while highs return to the lower 80's. Keep up to date with the latest forecast and of course you can always track any storms that develop with our interactive radar just above this discussion.
