Good evening! Temperatures and even humidity edged a little higher today and this is just the beginning of what will be a weekend which will feel a whole lot like summer. Under mostly sunny skies, we climbed into the middle 80s in most spots late this afternoon. We will remain dry this evening with temperatures falling back out of the 80s and through the 70s. By morning, we will be in the middle 60s. A disturbance arriving from the west late tonight could bring a spotty shower to some areas Saturday morning, but most won't see any rain until the afternoon. That's when scattered showers and storms will bubble up in the heat and humidity as an upper disturbance passes through. Some of these storms Saturday could produce some heavy rain and gusty winds. But it won't be a washout. These showers and storms will tend to fade away Saturday evening. On Sunday, the rain chances actually drop. Although I can't rule out a hit-or-miss storm or two, most should remain dry. In fact, the chance for rain even going into Memorial Day looks quite low overall, with only a few isolated showers and storms roaming the area. Humidity will continue to climb this weekend and so will temperatures with highs topping out in the upper 80s Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. By the middle of next week, we turn our attention to whatever will be left of Subtropical Storm Alberto. Some moisture from Alberto could make it into the Ohio Valley eventually enhancing our rain chances. For the latest on our weekend weather conditions and for a look ahead to next week's possible impacts from Alberto, please join me for Local 12 News at 10 on Star 64 and for Local 12 News at 11. Have a great evening!
