Steam and some storms ahead

Good Tuesday to one and all. What a gorgeous day we have going on out there. Highs in the low 80s under a partly sunny sky. As we inch closer to the Memorial Day weekend, steamy temps and scattered storms take center stage.

Let’s start with Tuesday’s dose of awesomeness:

Humidity will increase with the threat of some showers and storms Wednesday:

A few of those could be strong or severe, especially in the west.

The forecast from this point is pretty straightforward, with toasty temps, high humidity and the threat of some showers and storms. Any one day over the holiday weekend can have highs flirt with 90 degrees:

A few weeks ago, I made the declaration that I thought the pattern could give us a 90-degree day in the days leading up to Memorial Day. That was a pretty bold call given how cool and wet things were. But, when did I ever shy away from being bold? Weather forecasting isn’t for wimps! :)

The one thing that can keep us from flirting with 90: thunderstorms. It does look like a daily threat of some thunderstorms will be with us:

With such incredible humidity levels for the month of May, any storm could be severe and put down flash-flooding rains.

Enjoy your day and take care.
