While severe weather is not expected today, a few stronger storms are possible on Sunday. The primary weather threat will be 1″ hail and wind gusts to 60 mph on Sunday evening. A few showers and storms are possible on Monday, however severe storms are not expected on Memorial Day.

Skies will remain mostly sunny to partly cloudy through the holiday with highs in the upper 70s and 80s. No significant changes to our “summer-like” weather pattern in the week ahead, with partly cloudy skies and isolated showers and storms in the forecast, especially towards the end of next week.
