On Memorial Day, Atlanta is expected to reach 98 degrees, which also would mark an all-time May record. This will set us up for a nice day on Saturday, with a blend of clouds and sunshine and mild temperatures.

Saturday - Partly sunny, then gradually becoming sunny. Another batch of showers crosses the region Saturday night and as I mentioned earlier, hopefully departs, leaving us with partly to mostly sunny skies for Sunday.

A swing in overnight temperatures will usher the latest round of showers moving into the Fresno area and will also contribute to above-average rainfall for this time of the year. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.

With heat index values in the 90s and scattered storm chances through the weekend, you'll want to stay plenty hydrated and keep an umbrella handy.

Temperatures are expected to vary significantly throughout the week, with highs near 64 degrees Tuesday, 71 Wednesday, 80 Thursday, and 74 Friday, according to the weather service.

During an interview on NBA TV, Webber said that there is no better man than Howard to continue what Beilein started. He was named for Jalen Rose , however, and it's expected U-M will have every opportunity to keep him in the fold.

The forecast for Memorial Day in New Jersey looks good. A couple stray thunderstorms are possible, especially later during the day. Highs in the 80s are forecast for Friday, Sunday and Monday.

Showers and storms will be around the first half of next week with high temperatures from the upper 70s to mid 80s.

By Memorial Day, we will be dry and not as warm and humid.

COOLER START TO THE WEEK: Temperatures are not as warm for the return to work after the extended holiday weekend.

There may be a couple of overnight showers Saturday, and if the forecast is going to go wrong this weekend, it will be Sunday.
