Attractive and warmer weather for the holiday weekend


Saturday will feature temperatures well above normal for this time of year with some places along and east of Interstate 25 climbing to near record highs. Rain showers and storms return by late evening, taking us into the evening and overnight hours. There is also a high pollen count forecast, making it a bad day for hay fever sufferers.

Met Eireann has predicted that temperatures are set to reach as a high as 23 degrees Celcius in parts of the country today. Sunshine through the day will help temperatures warm quickly through the 50s in the midday hours and into the lower 60s later this afternoon with a fairly light north breeze.

TUESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy skies and cool temperatures develop, with a low of 58 degrees. Sunny Saturday, high around 90.

Winds will be light and southerly or variable in direction.

Afternoon temperatures on Saturday will range from 15° in the northwest to between 17° and 22° elsewhere. Lows of 6 to 9 degrees.

We're dry for the next 3 days before a system moves in.

The west and midlands promise the best bets for bouts of hazy sunshine and temperatures nudging 21C or 22C today. Clouds will follow a similar pattern, meaning the clouds will start to exit east MS after midnight, with cloud cover hanging around west Alabama until perhaps as early as sunrise tomorrow.

Winds will be moderate and southerly and will freshen along the west coast later on Sunday evening.
