Showers will continue through Wednesday evening, heaviest and most widespread up through 8 PM... Showers will break up even more overnight but a stubborn band holds on into Thursday morning, clearing from W to E, with rain possible in the Metro up through noon. We’ll wind up with additional totals (from 6 PM Wed. to 2 PM Thurs) of .5″-1″ for most areas on top of what has already fallen.

Drier and warmer weather is on track for Memorial day weekend. We’ll start to break into sun on Thursday with a climb back to the 60s. The late afternoon will be decent with sunnier skies and a warm up.

We’ll keep the warm up going from there and by Saturday we’ll be in the 80s, 90s by Sunday and Memorial Day.

We’ll look out for isolated shower/t-storm potential late Sunday but so far plenty of dry time is on track. As the forecast heats up, and with moisture around, you’ll notice some mugginess in the air through the weekend. Our next best rain chances arrive late Tuesday night and will continue through Wednesday into early Thursday morning.
