NOWCAST: Partly cloudy and milder tonight with a small chance of an isolated rain shower, especially for areas north and east of BG.
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: This extended weekend is going to shape up to be quite nice, with only a small chance for an isolated or widely scattered rain shower or thunderstorm to contend with. Tonight temperatures will fall into the 50s and any rain will likely be well north and east of BG. Tomorrow, partly sunny with a chance of a scattered rain shower or pop-up thunderstorm as high temperatures reach the upper 70s. For Memorial Day on Monday, don't cancel those outdoor plans, just have a backup in case you have to dodge a passing rain shower. Daytime temperatures Monday will be in the low 80s.
FEELING MORE LIKE SUMMER: A big warming trend continues into next week. With fair to partly cloudy skies, expect highs to soar into the upper 80s by late week as a strong ridge of high pressure builds over the region. We may even touch 90 degrees by next weekend! Lows at night will also be warming, falling only into the mid 60s late in the period.
