The early summer pattern will continue for rest of the work week. Expect warm temperatures with highs in the upper 80s to near 90. We will see a mix of sun and clouds with daily afternoon pop-up storms.
An area of disturbed weather, labeled Invest 90L by the National Hurricane Center, will move out of the Caribbean and into the Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week. An area of low pressure may form and approach somewhere along the Gulf Coast by the weekend. Heavy rain is the primary threat, and the exact track of this low will determine where the heaviest rain will fall.
The take away is that Memorial Day weekend is likely to be stormy for folks heading to the beaches. If the low pressure track farther west, we could be wet here at home too.
