First Alert Weather: What to expect 5/28

(KFVS) - 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.

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