Happy Memorial Day! And, for Douglas Adams fans, Happy Towel Day! Have a backup plan for this afternoon's picnics and softball games; you may need to duck inside for a few minutes as showers and thunderstorms trundle through the region.

MEMORIAL DAY: partly cloudy, warm and humid, sctd. showers and thunderstorms, breezy, high 85.
MONDAY NIGHT: sctd. showers and storms, muggy, low 65.
TUESDAY: showers and thunderstorms, humid, high 82.
WEDNESDAY: mostly cloudy, showers and storms, high 80.
THURSDAY: rain in the morning then clearing, high 81.

The high pressure that provided us with such a beautiful day on Sunday has moved to the east leaving us with a strong southerly/southwesterly flow today. As an added bonus, a warm front to our north and that means we're in the warm sector of an approaching low-pressure system. Warm, humid air is being dragged into the state all the way from the Gulf of Mexico. In short, we're warm and unstable. (Nerd stuff: LIs drop to -2 today, enough for some good thunderstorms, but not likely to be severe. CAPE stays < 1000. Meh.) The showers and thunderstorms in Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee overnight are likely to lose energy through sunrise but a few showers just might survive long enough to make it into Ohio.

Today's warm, humid air will start with some sunshine this morning, just to add fuel to the fire for this afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms will have outflow boundaries, diurnal heating, and a little vorticity to play with today. We will remain unsettled through most of the week. Ahhhh, summer.
