Temperatures soar, thunderstorm risk increases over Memorial Day Weekend

The Memorial Day Weekend forecast is looking pretty good — despite the rain chances, according to forecasters.

Temperatures will climb into the mid- and upper-80s on Friday — staying warm and mostly dry on Saturday. Rain chances will increase on Sunday, and that will be followed with more scattered showers and thunderstorms on Monday.

Both days will see temperatures climb into the low-80s — rounding out a summer-like holiday weekend.

FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says the biggest threat with the storms and showers that pop up over the weekend will be heavy rain. However, a lot of uncertainty remains with how the second-half of the long weekend will unfold.
