TRACKING: Showers and Thunderstorms into Holiday Weekend

TRACKING: Showers and Thunderstorms into Holiday Weekend

As we head into Memorial Day Weekend, daytime temperatures will be in the 70s for the most part.

Skies will remain clear through Sunday, when the forecast calls for partly cloudy conditions leading into a mostly cloudy but still warm Memorial Day, forecasts show.

Showers and thunderstorms tracking through the KWWL viewing area this morning are heading north. They could have gusty winds as the main threat.

Temperatures will hover near 70 in Salt Lake City through the weekend, with lows in the 50s.

Hillary Clinton: Trump is "not qualified" to be President
Referencing his own boycott of Oreo cookies for shifting some production jobs to Mexico, Trump said: "I'm not eating Oreos any more you know".


Each day through Monday will bring the chance of at least some rain which could interrupt outdoor celebrations, cookouts and vacations for people in the area.

Expect highs in the mid-80s both days.

The bright side? The wet weekend weather will leave in time for dry Memorial Day cookouts and activities. We could even get to 90 degrees Saturday (and possibly Friday). There's a weak front and enough instability to pop up a few scattered showers and a thunderstorm late in the day and early this evening. Still believe a wave of showers will arrive that Monday night and continue right into Tuesday.

Sunday will be much less rainy than Saturday, with some peeks of sunshine. Look for a 30-to-40-percent chance of rain to close out the week. "Low clouds and fog quickly burn off after sunrise and temperatures will be off to the races".
