As we kick off the Memorial Day weekend, it looks to be an active period of weather starting with thunderstorms in the forecast today.

Mostly cloudy skies are expected today with afternoon scattered strong thunderstorms developing. We have a MEDIUM risk for severe weather this afternoon and evening across the Tri-States. Storms may produce large hail, strong winds, and flooding rains. An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out. Highs in the mid to upper 80s and lows in the upper 60s to around 70.

Thunderstorms are expected late tonight into Saturday morning with some decrease in the storm coverage Saturday afternoon as highs climb into the lower 80s. Saturday night, another round of strong to possible severe thunderstorms will move into the Tri-States.

Scattered thunderstorms remain possible on Sunday with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s.

On Memorial Day, a few scattered storms around in the morning will give way to partly cloudy skies during the afternoon with highs in the lower 80s.

A few more isolated storms possible Tuesday and Wednesday before dry weather and highs in the mid to upper 70s are expected next Thursday and Friday.

We’re tracking this holiday weekend’s storm chances coming up on WGEM News at Noon!
