After the wet and stormy week of weather, we are finally getting a chance to dry out as the front has exited the state and drier air settles into the Deep South. We are seeing plenty of sunshine today, lower humidity, and temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s for most locations. Tonight will be clear and refreshing with widespread 50s by first thing tomorrow morning.
ACROSS THE USA: Scattered severe thunderstorms may continue Friday over the Carolinas and along the East Coast north into parts of the Mid-Atlantic. Damaging wind gusts and a few tornadoes are the primary threats. Across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, localized flash and urban flooding impacts are possible due to potentially heavy rainfall, particularly over steep terrain and in vulnerable urban areas.
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: The weather will be delightful for the three day holiday weekend with sunny days and fair nights. The highs tomorrow will be in the low to mid 80s, followed by mid to upper 80s Sunday. Monday should be the hottest day with a high close to 90°. Nights will be comfortable with 60s common.
REST OF NEXT WEEK: An upper ridge will build across the Gulf Coast region, meaning mostly hot and dry weather with highs in the low 90s. It still looks like a few scattered showers begin to pop back up across the state by the end of the week as those humidity levels climb slowly.
