We have a break in the weather this afternoon with some sun coming through.
This weekend is the final full weekend of meteorological spring. There will be times when you'll know that summer is basically here. Winds will be from the east and then turn onshore from the east on Monday.
Here's a look at how the holiday weekend forecast is shaping up. The next best chance for scattered showers in the 7-day is Tuesday, which should bring down the pollen count a bit. Beaches top out in the mid to upper 80s, but inland areas could reach the upper 90s this afternoon. The morning is mainly quiet, but a few showers are possible early, perhaps a thunderstorm. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for Friday evening through Saturday morning for all of northern Illinois, Lake County, Indiana, and parts of southern Wisconsin and eastern Iowa.
Temperatures are expected to be mild throughout the weekend as they climb into the 70s.
Saturday features a lot of sunshine.
Water temperatures are only in the 50s, however, so if you're going to the beach and want to go swimming for some reason, just remember those kind of temperatures are unsafe if you're not wearing a wetsuit.
Sunday, May 26: Much warmer with the mercury rising to the mid 80s.
The weekend is expected to get even hotter, with an at-record temperature of 96 degrees on Saturday and 95 on Sunday.
A frontal system passing offshore should move along quickly enough to give us a nice day. That would be the one change that could occur to this forecast.
Otherwise we'll have plenty of sunshine all three days, with Monday perhaps being the most ideal of the three.
And while the roads have cleared up, the Arizona Department of Transportation said drivers still need to buckle up and be mindful of their speed, as there were seven fatal crashes on Arizona roadways last Memorial Day weekend.
