Sunday Afternoon Weather Discussion

I hope that you are having a fantastic Sunday! Today, temperatures were very hot across area, with most places getting into the lower 90s. We were only 2 degrees shy of a record high of 95 degrees, which was set in 1958; our high was 93. Temperatures will slowly begin to cool off tonight, but temperatures will remain very mild; lows will be in the upper 60s tonight. Tomorrow will be nice, with temperatures in the upper 80s, rather than the lower 90s; that will make if feel more bearable outside for Memorial Day. If you have any outdoor plans, there will be lots of sun around, with only a 30% chance for a few afternoon storms. The setup will remain very similar for Tuesday, with highs in the upper 80s and a 30% chance for a storm or two. The heat will back off a bit by Wednesday, with highs in the middle 80s. There will be more clouds and shower activity around. This will be associated with a weak cold front that will move through here. The rain and clouds will move out by Thursday, which will set us up for a very nice weekend; highs will be in the upper 80s, with lots of sun around.

Be sure to join us on a live newscast tonight at 10 p.m. for the latest on your forecast. Have a great Memorial Day!
