Memorial Day: Sunny, with a high near 93. Low pressure tracks out from the west slinging showers and thunderstorms over the region by early Memorial Day and this could run for most of the day. Don't forget that sunscreen today with the UV Index reaching a 9, meaning only 15 minutes before the sun begins to burn your skin.
Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy and pleasant, making it good weather for evening barbecues. Overnight, it's partly cloudy and warm, with lows in the mid-60s to near 70. On the other hand, between these storm chances plenty of dry time will be enjoyed for outdoor work.
High temperatures will hit the low 70s in the afternoon. A Level 2 risk, indicating a greater likelihood of severe storms, is in effect for the eastern part of the viewing area, along and east of a line from Washington to Manchester and south of U.S. Highway 20.
The cloud cover and scattered rain will stick around throughout the day as highs only make it into the mid-50s. During the mid to late afternoon a few storms will be possible on Monday.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy skies and isolated storms will continue to stay in the weather forecast, with a high temperature of 85 degrees. While we are not anticipating numerous storms, a few storms will be possible and they will form in an environment where they could turn severe.
