Memorial Day weekend will be here before you know it. Whether you are traveling or staying home, it is vital to know the forecast.
- On Friday, take your umbrella if you live across the Central US as many will see rain and some will have severe thunderstorms. Those out West can also expect to have scattered thunderstorms.
- A stormy Saturday is in the forecast. Severe thunderstorms are expected across the Northeast, so you may want to reschedule any outdoor activities.
- There is currently no organized severe weather expected on Sunday, but the Mid-Atlantic through the Mississippi River Valley, and in the Plains, can expect rain and thunderstorms. With all the rain that has fallen this year, you may want to have a pair of rain boots on hand.
- Memorial Day calls for heavy rain and strong storms across the Western Plains. Those who live in this area should keep an eye on the weather if they plan to be out grilling. Remember that lightning can be deadly, so it is always best to have a back-up plan.
Throughout the coming days, temperatures will be above normal in the East and the Southeast, and cooler in the southwest. Plan accordingly if you will be on the road or if you have outdoor events to attend. To learn more specifics about your Memorial Day weekend forecast, take a look at our video posted above.
