Memorial Day weather: Highs in 80s, scattered showers

Prepare for a little precipitation as you head out for Memorial Day picnics and parades.

Forecasters say the metro area is likely to get a few scattered showers, mostly in the afternoon and evening.

Because there will be little wind to move storms along, isolated storms could sit for 30-45 minutes over a given area and dump up to an inch of rain, WCCO's Mike Augustyniak said. There's also a small chance of hail, he said. It's difficult to predict exactly where and when an isolated storm might strike today, he said.

If you are headed to the Target Field, a few showers might interrupt the Twins' 1:10 p.m. game, Augustyniak said.

KARE 11 says scattered storms are "rather likely" after noon but before sunset. No severe weather is expected, the station reports.

The National Weather Service forecasts a high of 82 in the Twin Cities for Memorial Day, with temperatures in the 80s across much of the state, 70s in northern Minnesota. KARE 11's high-temperature map looks like this:

The week ahead looks warm – expect highs in the 80s in the metro, with more chances of showers Tuesday and Wednesday.
