AccuWeather: Memorial Day Weekend to Feel Like Summer
Memorial Day Weekend will feature warm temperatures and a chance of severe weather, but that shouldn't discourage you from charcoal, burgers and dogs.
"Certainly the weekend will have a summery feel to it," said Tom Kines, who has been with AccuWeather since 1983. "Not only is it gonna be warm, but humidity will be noticeable. I don't think unbearable, but so early in the season, we’re not quite accustomed to the humidity yet."
AccuWeather forecasts temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. It handicaps an afternoon shower or thunderstorm at 40-50 percent each day.
"I'd be surprised if we made it through the whole weekend without seeing a thunderstorm," Kines said. "At some point, it's pretty likely. The odds are probably better maybe on Monday."
"Will it rain all day? No," Kines said. "if you have outdoor plans, I wouldn’t be cancelling them yet."
