Happy Memorial Day Weekend! We’ve set up a dry pattern that will take us into the middle part of next week.

For Saturday night, skies will be largely clear with lighter winds.

This could contribute to some areas of fog developing overnight. Fog is not expected to be widespread but there could be some pockets of locally dense fog.

Lows fall back into the 50s overnight.

As we look into Sunday, skies will be mostly sunny across the region as a dry pattern continues to set up over the region.

Sunday’s highs will be a bit milder – climbing into the lower and middle 80s – though some upper 70s are possible in the higher elevations.

On Memorial Day, barbecues and picnics will have beautiful weather with a good deal of sunshine, though temperatures will be even a bit warmer as they reach the lower and middle 80s in the mountains – upper 80s to near 90 further east.

We’ll continue dry into Tuesday and Wednesday with highs reaching the mid 80s in the west and into the lower 90s further east. Humidity levels will also be climbing a bit as well.

As we look toward the end of next week, we do turn a bit unsettled as we re-introduce the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms possible both Thursday and Friday – possibly lingering into next Saturday as well. Thursday’s highs will still be very warm into the 80s to near 90 but by Friday, we likely won’t be quite as warm as highs are forecast to fall back into the mid-and-upper 70s in the mountains to the lower 80s further east.

Oh, by the way…we have a tropical system that we’re watching. This is Agatha. It’s in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Usually, we don’t worry out storms out here, but Agatha looks to make landfall – possibly as a Category 2 hurricane in western Mexico. Models are indicating that it could re-emerge into the Atlantic basin – more specifically, into the Bay of Campeche toward the middle of the week ahead. Could it potentially restrengthen into a system and pose a problem for the lower-48? It’s something we’re watching.

So, enjoy the long Memorial Day weekend! It’s also the last weekend of the month and the unofficial start of summer!I’ll have your full forecast tonight after the Phillies take on the Mets tonight on WFXR News First at Ten!
