Memorial Day Weekend is warm and stuffy with small thunderstorm chances

Strong to severe thunderstorms are likely, with the primary threat being large hail and damaging winds, although an isolated tornado can not be ruled out.

Let's back up to today's forecast, when we do have clouds increasing and just a chance for a few morning showers and then another round of showers later in the day. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for Friday evening through Saturday morning for all of northern Illinois, Lake County, Indiana, and parts of southern Wisconsin and eastern Iowa. FOX 5's Mike Thomas says the system that brought severe weather to the mid-west could bring strong storms to our area between the 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. hours. Overnight lows in the upper 60s with a very muggy feel to the air. The area will get hit with another round of storms Monday afternoon.

Looking ahead to Memorial Day, I expect the dry weather to continue, with sunshine and temperatures in the 70s. Temperatures will again climb into the low 90s with a heat index in the low 100s. On Sunday, temperatures will range from 52 to 70 degrees.

Through Thursday, it was the third coldest May in the last 30 years in Phoenix, with an average of 76.3 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Notre Dame adds running back prospect Tyree
They have not finished that high since 2013, when they finished No. 5 with a class led by Jaylon Smith. Notre Dame running back coach Lance Taylor had a huge impact on his decision.

Hang in there, all of you who are planning to host or attend a barbecue on Memorial Day.

There's a moderate risk of rip currents along the Jersey Shore on Friday with ocean temperatures in the mid-50s. Readings are in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

The forecast for Memorial Day in New Jersey looks good.
