.DISCUSSION...
Highs will be in the middle to upper 80s into tomorrow with lows
in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

An increase in showers and thunderstorms is expected for Saturday
night into Sunday as a cold front moves through the area. The best
chances for showers and thunderstorms will shift south across areas
south of I-40 on Memorial Day.

Lingering shower and thunderstorm chances are expected through much
of next week as the cold front returns back north as a warm front by
the middle of next week then gradually stalls out over the area.
