Tonight: Showers will begin to taper off after sunset, but some moisture will still remain until the early hours of tomorrow morning. Mostly cloudy skies will keep overnight temperatures near seasonal averages. Lows in the 40s.
Tomorrow: Memorial Day weekend is getting off to a wet start. Dry air wrapped around the incoming low pressure should keep many areas clear tomorrow morning, but daytime heating will help spike afternoon showers and thunderstorms yet again tomorrow. Moisture will be more widespread, but storms should move through quickly yielding periods of clearer conditions. Temperatures will be much cooler, and highs will warm only to the 50s and 60s.
Extended: The low pressure over California has begun its trek eastward and will be situated over our area by tomorrow afternoon. This means showers and thunderstorms will occur on and off in the afternoon with the possibility for lightning and gusty conditions at times. Sunday and Monday look somewhat clearer, but rain will still be a threat in the afternoon. Make sure to keep an eye on the radar if you have any outdoor activities planned, but we may be able to salvage the second half of the holiday weekend! Temperatures through the period will be below normal. By mid-week, high pressure will bring drier conditions and a warming trend.
