Up to an hour of rain and possible thunder late this afternoon appears to be the only weather disruption we’ll see this long weekend. Memorial Day weekend is often referred to as the “unofficial beginning of summer.” This year, however, it’ll be more like the middle of summer, especially tomorrow and Monday.
This afternoon, I expect a narrow line of showers/thunder to form over southern Indiana by around 2 P.M. They will drift slowly southeastward through the Louisville metro between about 4 P.M. and 5:30 P.M. It should not be a solid line, so not everyone will see rain. Even those who receive rain won’t get much, probably less than a quarter inch.
The rest of the weekend will be hot, humid and dry. Only a scant chance for a thunderstorm tomorrow and Monday. Highs both days will be near 90 degrees. (heat index: low 90’s)
