The unofficial start to summer is living up to its name, with temperatures soaring into the upper 70s and lower 80s throughout the holiday weekend. "The only fly in the ointment would be Saturday night with some passing thunderstorms possible," NWS meteorologist Tim Morrin said. "But Saturday during the day, Sunday and Monday, for now, are expected to be mostly sunny with summer-like conditions." Saturday is expected to be sunny and less windy, and temperatures will top out around 73 degrees, according to the weather service. The overnight low is expected to be around 62 degrees. A chance of rain and thunderstorms is expected to return Saturday night, but the clouds are predicted to clear by Sunday afternoon, making way for a sunny day and a high around 87 degrees. Keep the sunglasses handy for Memorial Day as well, as the forecast is expected to be sunny with a high near 79 degrees. More sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 70s should help soften the blow of returning to work on Tuesday.
