Memorial Day weekend 2018: Storms, clouds dominate forecast

Near record setting temperatures, storm chances this weekend.

- Slow-moving storms will be the primary risk over this Memorial Day.

Western Massachusetts will reach highs in the mid-70s Monday, while Boston should see a high of about 64 degrees, he said. We're looking at green flag temperatures already in the lower 80s, and as fans are making their way home, temperatures will likely be in the lower 90s.

It looks like it'll be a hot but mostly sunny Memorial Day weekend.

Hot temperatures continue heading into Memorial Day.

Rain could be heavy at times, and that heightens flooding concerns. Monday's high is expected to be 93 in Chicago, coming close to the record.

Monday evening is also expected to have some showers and thunderstorms as the chance of precipitation is forecast to be 60 percent. Scattered thunderstorms and area rain are likely.

Winds will be calm and the humidity will high throughout the day.

Low clouds and patchy fog will slowly break, and we'll get some some peeks of sun in the morning, but expect a mainly cloudy AM. 92 is the record high set in 2012. The cloud cover will be thicker Tuesday and there is even the chance for an isolated shower in the afternoon.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of rain during the day and a 50 percent chance of showers at night. Barring several caution laps during the race, we're hopeful any rain chances should hold off until after the checkered flag drops. Highs will be in the low 80s Tuesday, and a little warmer Wednesday.
