      Today was the first day in over a week to reach 70 or higher. In fact, it was 8 days ago when that strong cold front triggered severe weather and tornadoes through parts of the area, and our temperatures have been below average since. A warm front is pushing in, and some light scattered showers will move through overnight, and should move out early morning. We will be left with clouds, though there will be breaks in them for the sun to shine through, and once again we should be in the 70s. A cold front quickly follows and moves through during afternoon and evening, sparking scattered showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures won't cool much behind the front. In fact, Saturday looks to be in the mid 70s thanks to a partly cloudy sky, though some isolated showers in the afternoon can't be ruled out. Still, Saturday looks like the best day for outdoor activities this Memorial Day weekend. Chances for scattered showers for Sunday, but there will be a decent amount of the day that is dry, so while you shouldn't cancel outdoor plans, you'll want to have a "plan B" for when some showers move through, and the best chance for rain comes Monday, and although it will be light rain, we are expecting rain at least half of the time as scattered showers form along a cold front. Highs will drop to the mid 60s and stay in 60s through the middle of next week, when the weather pattern will start to switch and slowly bring in more summerlike weather. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist Matt Schaefer
