WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Scattered storms Monday and Tuesday
Warmer and more humid all week
SUNDAY NIGHT Scattered showers will be quite isolated overnight with most areas staying dry after midnight. Lows will fall back to around 64.
MEMORIAL DAY The best shot at dry weather will coming in the morning. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible, especially in the afternoon and evening, but most of Monday will be dry. High temps will reach near 80 degrees. Strong winds from the south then southwest will increase to 15-25 by afternoon. Rip current risk will be high, especially for south-facing piers.
TUESDAY AND BEYOND: We’re back into a warmer and wetter pattern next week with afternoon temperatures ranging from the mid 70s to low 80s (cooler near Lake Michigan). I have to include at least a chance of a shower or t-storm each day next week. At this point, it’s hard to say exactly which time would be the best for seeing rain. The models are forecasting a good 1-2″ of rain across the area in the week from Sunday night through next weekend.
