From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

Low pressure will pull a cold front across the state today giving us some scattered showers and possibly a few thunderstorms especially during the afternoon. It won’t be a washout by any means. When it’s not raining, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will reach the 60s for most cities/towns with some coastal areas staying in the upper 50s to around 60° due to an onshore wind. The cold front will move to our south and east this evening. Cooler air moving in behind the front will allow temperatures to drop to the low to mid-30s for overnight lows. AS the cooler air moves in, any lingering showers tonight could mix with or even change to some snow over northern locations.

We may still see a few showers Saturday morning as a disturbance crosses the state otherwise expect variably cloudy skies and a cool day. Temperatures will only reach the 50s to low 60s for highs Saturday afternoon. Northwest winds will be gusty Saturday with gusts to 30 MPH possible so when combined with temperatures mainly in the 50s, we’ll have more of a fall-like feel to the air for the start of the holiday weekend. A weak cold front is forecast to cross the state Sunday and could give us a few scattered showers otherwise we’ll see a mainly dry day with partly sunny skies Sunday and milder temperatures. High pressure to our south will shift our winds around to the southwest Sunday, ushering milder air into the region with highs topping off in the upper 60s to mid-70s. Memorial Day is looking good with partly sunny skies and warmer temperatures as highs reach the 70s to near 80°.

Today: mostly cloudy with scattered showers and possibly a few thunderstorms. Highs between 58°-68°, coolest along the coast. South/southwest wind around 10 MPH.

Tonight: partly to mostly cloudy. A few showers possible. Showers may mix or change to some wet snow over northern areas. Lows between 32°-38°. West/northwest wind 5-10 MPH.

Saturday: a few morning showers possible then variably cloudy, breezy and cool. Highs between 53°-62°. Northwest wind 10-20 MPH with gusts to 30 MPH possible.

Sunday: partly sunny and milder. A shower possible. Highs between 67°-75°.

Memorial Day: partly sunny and warm with highs in the 70s.

Tuesday: mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs in the mid-60s to mid-70s.
