Good early Saturday morning, everyone! We had to put up with rain and some t-storms yesterday especially late in the morning and early afternoon. That actually helped us out in terms of how the t-storm chances set up yesterday evening. Because of the rain and t-storms late Friday morning/early Friday afternoon, that worked the atmosphere over and it couldn’t recover by the time t-storms fired up west of us. As the storms out west approached us and moved away from the better instability and lift, they couldn’t hold onto their severe strength. Going into today, t-storm chances will still be around this morning. You can keep an eye on them on the radar below…
After we get past the t-storm chances this morning and after we start in the middle 60s, the rest of our Saturday is actually looking pretty good. I think the Future Track below might be a little generous on how clear we get today, but we will see a drier day with partly to mostly sunny skies…
Even though today will be one of the drier days of the holiday weekend, I still can’t rule out a few t-storms that’ll try to pop up mainly on the MO side this afternoon. Despite that, we’ll be warm today. With a good south wind and partly to mostly sunny skies, highs should return to the lower 80s this afternoon…
We keep things warm as we go through Sunday and Memorial Day proper. However, Sunday and Monday is when t-storm chances will try to pick back up. You can see that as we go into Sunday afternoon…
You can also see the idea of t-storm chances sticking around as we go into Memorial Day…
Even though t-storm chances pick back up Sunday and Monday, we’re not talking about rain and t-storms throughout the whole day. There will be dry time mixed in with the t-storm chances. Regardless of the t-storm chances, we’ll keep afternoon highs for the rest of the weekend in the lower to middle 80s. I expect t-storm chances to continue as we go through much of next week as we keep highs near 80° beyond Memorial Day. We’ll try to trend drier and a little cooler as we go into next weekend.
