ST. LOUIS — Historically, this can be a very wet time of the year, and as we approach Memorial Day weekend, outdoor plans are almost always in question as pop-up thunderstorms, heat, and humidity are in the forecast. But that's not really the case this year.
As you can see, temperatures aren't overly hot, and there really isn't any sort of rain chance until the holiday itself.
As it is normally muggy this time of the year, we are going to benefit from the arrival of a slightly cooler, drier air mass right before the weekend. Dew points will go from the 50s and 60s to the 30s and 40s to start the weekend. This will allow us to start with temperatures in the low 50s each day before topping out in the 80s.
While there is a slight chance for an afternoon thunderstorm on Monday afternoon, this looks to be extremely isolated at this point. If you have plans to travel to area lakes, it looks like both air temperature and water temperatures will cooperate with little issue for any of your outdoor plans.
Our dry trend continues, for the most part, leading into next week as well. Enjoy your holiday weekend, and we'll keep you posted with any changes.
