Memorial Day Weekend Forecast

A preview of the forecast for your Memorial Day Weekend.

Posted: May 25, 2018 8:28 PM

After a warm and sunny Friday with temperatures in the mid 80s, all eyes are on the forecast for the long weekend ahead, as many have Monday off from work and school. The weather looks to become wetter with each day as we move forward.

On Saturday, a cold front associated with a short wave trough currently situated in central Canada will dip south and increase our risk for a pop up shower or thunderstorm. Most areas will remain dry but the outside risk is still there (30% or less). Temperatures will be warm again, with highs expected to be in the low to mid 80s.

On Sunday, our chance for showers and thunderstorms increases as the front moves south of Central New York and stall in northern Pennsylvania. Any storms that do develop could contain heavy downpours, however severe weather looks to be very minimal at this point. Expect high temperatures to be in the mid-70s to just shy of 80 degrees, due to more extensive cloud cover.

Monday looks to be a repeat of Sunday, so if you have any outdoor plans Saturday is looking like the best weekend day to be outside. We will keep you posted on any thunderstorms that do develop should they become severe. Happy Memorial Day!
