A mild and cloudy start to the day with rain showers soon approaching from the southwest later this morning. First as light rain showers but some thunder storms are possible later this afternoon and evening. So if you have outdoor plans for today best to do them early.
Today will start off mostly cloudy but dry. At least for the first few hours this morning. A chance of some sunshine for the first part of the day at times up in the Northland. But clouds will thickening up there as well in the afternoon hours. Rain and thunderstorms will continue their trek in from the southwest this afternoon and into the evening hours. Little to no severe threat is expected today, there just isn't a whole lot of instability in the atmosphere but some small hail and areas of embedded heavy rain is possible with some of the storms as well as vivid lightning.
The cloud cover and rain will put a cap on high temperatures today. Around 70 degrees on average all across the region. Winds will be fairly breezy from the southeast 8 to 15 miles per hour. The rain showers and thunderstorms will continue through tonight and into the early part of the day Monday.
Memorial Day looks to start off wet with the remaining rain and storms from the overnight hours. That activity will lift to the north, and we should be able to break into some sunshine and drier weather for the afternoon. Temperatures should be able to rebound into the 70s. That means should be able to get in those BBQs in the afternoon. Rain will linger longer though if you'll be up in northern Wisconsin. Temperatures will remain on the cool side up there as those storms linger later in the evening.
It is possible we could see some another round of storms Monday evening and Monday night. We'll be watching that possibility closely because some of those storms may be on the stronger side.
A few showers and storms are possible on Tuesday spilling over from the overnight hours, but temperatures will warm for that day. Highs should top out in the middle to upper 70s. A few summer-like pattern next week. Highs in the 80s on Wednesday and Thursday. It does turn stormy though later on Thursday and into Friday.
Have a great rest of this Memorial Day Weekend and thank you to all past and present men and women of the armed forces for their service!
- The National Weather Service says there's a slight chance for severe weather along the Texas-New Mexico border and rainfall over the Memorial Day weekend will likely cause flash flooding across the southern Plains.
