FORECAST discussion:

A system will move through until Wednesday bringing showers and thunderstorms. There will be a few severe storms starting in the afternoon, some of which may become more severe. There is a low risk of severe weather (Level 2/5), with strong winds being the main risk.

Towards the evening, the chance for isolated stronger storms will be greatest far east of I-71. Between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m., the city has a greater chance of experiencing isolated strong storms. Highs will reach the lower 80s.

There will be more scattered showers overnight. A few rumbles of thunder will accompany them. Lows will be much cooler than they have been in some time. Temperatures will drop into the upper 50s. The wind will still be breezy at times.

As the storms move through and the cold front passes, the cooler temperatures on the tail end won’t last long. By the end of the week there will be a recovery back into the 80s. There will be several rounds of scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout Memorial Day weekend. Next week brings a return to normal temperatures for this time of year.
