Areas of heavy rain will continue to be possible this evening and tonight as slow moving showers and storms develop in an unstable airmass.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Areas of Rain

Lows: 60s | Precipitation: Locally Heavy

Wednesday: Mostly Cloudy, T-Showers Likely

Highs: Near 80 | Precipitation: 60%

Thursday: Partly Cloudy, PM T-Showers

Highs: Low 80s | Precipitation: 30%

An area of low pressure will remain over the area through Thursday. This will continue the unsettled weather pattern which includes warm and muggy days with occasional periods of sunshine and scattered showers and thunderstorms. Any storms that develop will be slow movers and have the potential of dropping significant amounts of rain. Temperatures will be inching upwards as well.

By Friday, high pressure will start building into the region. It will be a strong and very warm air mass that will control local conditions through the Memorial Day Weekend. Partly to mostly sunny skies are forecast for Saturday, Sunday and Monday with high temperatures around 90 degrees. It is not out of the question for spots to climb into the lower 90s. Right now , we are calling for a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms on Sunday, this could be pushed back to Monday or Tuesday depending on the ultimate strength and alignment of the high pressure system.
