Above average temps through Memorial Day

Posted: Updated:
(WRCB) - Good Tuesday.  The average temperature this time of year should be 80-82 degrees.  We will stay well above that for a while.

Our winds will blow from the southwest this afternoon at about 10-15 mph.  This will pump in some warm, moist air.  Highs will rise to about 84.

We get even warmer Wednesday as that stubborn southwest flow continues at 10-20 mph.  The high Wednesday will reach 88.

I am expecting about 88 on Thursday also, but a front sagging southward into the Tennessee Valley may spark a few showers and storms late Thursday into Thursday night.  The rain chance Thursday is about 30%.

Friday will be dry and warm with the high reaching 87.

For the Memorial Day weekend, look for a slight chance of an afternoon shower both Saturday and Sunday.  Highs both days will be in the low to mid 80s.

For Memorial Day on Monday, the rain chance will increase to about 60%.  We are still a long way off (meteorologically) from Monday so that forecast will likely be tweaked between now and then.  But definitely keep an eye on the forecast as we move through the next few days.
