Near record setting temperatures, storm chances this weekend

MEMORIAL DAY: Our thunderstorm chances now look to subside for Memorial Day, though we will be a bit cooler with mostly cloudy skies.

As for Memorial Day, the rain should lighten up but it'll still be cloudy.

The center of the storm is expected to remain west of the Ocala area, but there is some potential for tornadoes and flooding. A stray shower or thunderstorm can't be completely ruled out on either day, but the chance is slim at best.

Expect lots of clouds over Fall River and New Bedford on Monday, but some sunny breaks are likely.


Rain chances will be minimal on Tuesday before increasing again on Wednesday.

We have another extremely hot day coming on Tuesday with projected highs around 95. Gradually decreasing clouds. About 54 for the low.

Unfortunately, our weather pattern will be very unsettled this week - every single day through next weekend will feature a chance of showers, whether widespread, scattered, or isolated. Highs drop back into the upper-70s with a higher chance of thunderstorms. Another chance of afternoon showers and storms are likely, but look to be more scattered today than yesterday.

Duluth also set a new record high Saturday at 92 degrees breaking a record high of 85 degrees set in 1978, which was tied in the notably warm May of 2014. The chance of showers and thunderstorms is expected to decrease to 20 percent going into Friday evening, which is forecast to be partly cloudy with a low around 73.
