Heat and humidity to follow chilly holiday weekend


The remainder of the Memorial day weekend looks to be a cool and damp as  afternoon temperatures hold in the 60s both Sunday and Monday. Clouds will dominate Sunday as morning  sprinkles blossom into showers and thunderstorms  on Sunday especially in areas south and west of the city. The showers and thunderstorms will become more widespread over the entire area Sunday night and Monday. With an ample supply of gulf moisture, rainfall totals could be substantial as downpours develop.


Heat and humidity follow


Thunderstorms should depart early Tuesday  as a warm front passes. Gusty south-southwest winds  deliver  hot and humid air that should send temperatures surging into the middle 80s Tuesday and then into the lower 90s for an extended Wednesday through Friday run. Showers and thunderstorms should return by Friday and Saturday as a cold front approaches, raising the specter for some gusty storms accompanied by heavy rainfall.
