UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
|The weather will remain stormy across the central and northern Plains through the holiday weekend while dark skies spread into the Midwest and Ohio Valley. Although the rain is much needed, the soggy weather could put a damper on outdoor barbecues in the Northwest and northern California.|
Just like today, more scattered showers and storms will blossom as Sunday unfolds across the northern Rockies and Plains. The best opportunity for severe hail and gusty winds to accompany storms is from central Montana to Interstate 70 in Kansas.
Other storms could interrupt outdoor plans in the Mid-South, Mid-Mississippi Valley and Upper Midwest. Meanwhile, showers will soak the Northwest and northern New England.
Large stretches of central and southern California, the Southwest and East will stay dry.
Highs will climb into the 80s and 90s from the Southwest through the central and southern Plains into the Southeast. Temperatures will stay in the 50s, 60s and 70s for the Northwest, California, the Great Basin and from the northern Plains to the East Coast.
The weather pattern will remain in gridlock to end the extended weekend. More afternoon showers and storms will soak the central and northern Plains, Midwest and Mid-Mississippi Valley. Again Monday, severe storms will eye the Plains for a fourth day in a row.
Rain showers will sock the Northwest with downpours spreading as far south as Oakland, Calif., and San Francisco. Otherwise, the Southwest, Deep South and East will have another stellar day to conclude the Memorial Day holiday weekend with bright sunshine and great pool and picnic weather.
The warmest weather will stretch across the South with 90s warming the Southwest and 80s stretching from California into the Southeast. This includes most of the central Plains and central and lower Mississippi Valley.
Otherwise, air conditioners won't need to be working overtime in the Rockies and northern New England with highs in the 60s.
