Don't tell anyone summer is still several weeks away because Memorial Day weekend is start of summer. It will feel like summer again today with the heat and humidity. High pressure remains in place over the southeastern part of the country. Locally that means temperatures in the low 90s this afternoon. Southwest winds will kick up this afternoon with gusts over 20 mph. During the afternoon heat that could be a pop up storm at one or two locations. By tomorrow the stalled out frontal boundary presently to our north will drop farther south and bring a return of scattered showers and storms. The best chances for organized storms should be along I-64 and northward into Southern Indiana closer to the front. With the increased clouds highs will drop to the upper 80s. .
Memorial Day looks hot and humid with highs around the 90-degree mark. An isolated storm is possible during the hottest part of the day. As high pressure strengthens again Tuesday, highs return to the low 90s with an increase in humidity. By mid week, a weakening front is expected to move into region bringing a chance for storms late Wednesday followed by slightly cooler highs into the low and mid-80s late week.
Have a safe holiday and don't forget the sun screen.
