Good morning, it is Monday, May 28. Happy Memorial Day!

First Alert Forecast

Memorial Day will be very summer-like, with highs near 90 and plenty of sunshine and humidity.

Laura Wibbenmeyer warns that just like on Sunday, however, a few afternoon and evening thunderstorms are likely to develop and could be briefly pretty strong with gusty winds, very heavy rain and lots of lightning.

The best chance of thunderstorms today looks to be over southeastern counties of KY, TN and the Bootheel although a few are possible in MO and IL as well.

Otherwise, we should have a slightly stronger northeast breeze, which should help just a little
