MEMORIAL DAY MONDAY: As we remember and commemorate those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for America, the weather couldn’t be nicer for late May across the Mid-South. Expect sunshine, mixing with a few clouds to push highs into the seasonable middle 80s by the afternoon. An ‘air quality alert’ is in place through for the Memphis Metro area – those with lung issues should limit time outdoors. We’ll stay mostly clear and quiet overnight with lows in the 60s, for most; upper 50s to the east of Memphis.

TUESDAY: Heading back to work after the long holiday weekend may be tough – considering our, generally, nice weather stretch looks to continue through Tuesday. Expect highs to run closer to the middle to upper 80s amid a mix of clouds and sunshine. We’ll tend to run a bit warmer in the overnights – in the middle to upper 60s by early Wednesday.

EXTENDED FORECAST: Moisture will start to stack up a bit through the latter part of the work week – enough to spark a few afternoon downpours amid a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will creep closer to 90 by Thursday and Friday; lower 90s as high pressure sneaks overhead by the upcoming weekend.
