Mostly sunny and warm for Friday

Any storms that spark have the potential to be severe, bringing torrential rainfall, unsafe lightning and damaging winds and hail to areas in the line of fire.

Thursday: Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm after 3pm. Highs: Upper Mid-70s to low 80s.

The triggers for showers this weekend are all due to multiple low-pressure systems. The morning begins with plenty of scattered shower activity. Therefore, any lingering clouds will clear away and temperatures will bottom out in the 50s. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except for higher amounts possible in thunderstorms. Friday night, the chance of showers slips to 20 percent after 1 a.m.

"Monday's weather will be quite cool and unsettled across the region with highs only in the 60s and 70s F", said Pydynowski. Showers will taper off through the day on Friday as the low pressure system tracks into the Canadian Maritimes.

Friday's forecast is calling for a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms under partly cloudy skies beginning in the afternoon hours.

If you're planning on grilling or getting together outside over the long holiday weekend, you might want to aim for Saturday.

Saturday features partly sunny skies with highs around 70 degrees, the weather service said.

Saturday night, expect a 30 percent chance of showers and storms before 1 a.m., with a low of 56, according to the weather service. The high is expected to hit 80 degrees.

Earlier in the week, I was advertising a warmup for Memorial Day Monday. We will have to watch for a few thunderstorms, however, on Memorial Day. Expect mostly clear skies Thursday night, with lows around 48. The storms could affect areas mainly west of DFW late Saturday, with rain a little more likely for DFW on Sunday.

For Virginia and North Carolina beaches, water temperatures are mid-60s to lower 70s.

Friday Night: Cloudy. Lows within a few degrees of 50. High: Low-mid 70s.

Have a great Thursday!
