were either calm or light out of the southwest.
The Quad State region will remain in an unsettled weather pattern
going into the Memorial Day weekend. As high Pressure at the
surface and aloft slowly drifts east, low pressure will slowly
move from northeast Colorado into western Nebraska and Northwest
Kansas. The combination of these two weather features will produce
a series of weather disturbances moving from southwest to
northeast across the area.
Locally heavy rain, along with frequent and dangerous lightning,
will be the most likely impacts for the upcoming holiday weekend.
As the area of low pressure moves from the upper Midwest into
Canada, high pressure will build back into the region Sunday
night. This will briefly reduce rain chances during the latter
part of the Memorial holiday weekend. However, a return to a wet
summer like pattern is expected to return by the middle of next

lows in the 60s.
