Drier changes are on the way, arriving just in time for the Memorial Day weekend.  Before those changes get here, we still run a minor risk for late-day and evening spotty showers or brief thunderstorms, formed from today’s heating, existing moisture, and the approach of the cold front that will usher in the dry air mass and eliminate the rain threat for the long weekend.  The cold front will cause lower morning temperatures, but afternoons will remain warm with less moisture and lower humidity. In the short-term, lows tonight will be in the middle 60s with scattered clouds and isolated showers through the early morning.  Then, with additional sunshine and dryness, highs will rise to around 90°, but it’s going to be less muggy than today.  Weekend morning lows may fall into the 50s while highs range from 86° to 91° areawide.
