After tying today's record low of 39° this morning, our ample amount of sunshine will drive temperatures into the mid to upper 60s later this afternoon. It will gorgeous start to your holiday weekend; however, we'll only see temperatures on the rise throughout the reminder of the extended forecast. After dropping back into the low 40s overnight, some light upper level moisture will begin to filter in ahead of a slow moving warm front, giving us partly cloud to mostly cloudy skies for your Saturday. As that warm front inches closer, isolated rainfall will become a possibility as early as Sunday afternoon. While it won't be a washout by any means, you may still want to plan for some light rain if you're headed down to the race. As for it appears that those rain chances will continue for Memorial Day, but because temperatures will top out in the mid 70s, we could actually see some thunderstorms mixed in with the light showers. Once that warm front passes to our north, temperatures will skyrocket. Afternoon highs temperatures may hit the low 90s by next Thursday.
