...Cool, Showery, and Breezy Memorial Day Weekend...

WINDY THROUGH THE WEEKEND: Gusty southwest to west winds will
continue into the holiday weekend, with gusts of 30 to 40 mph
expected this afternoon. The strongest winds will occur on
Saturday, where widespread gusts of 35-45 mph could produce areas
of blowing dust. Wind prone locations could see gusts of 50+ mph.
Hazardous boating conditions can be expected across all area
lakes, along with travel difficulties for high profile vehicles
and rough air for aviation interests. Winds will remain gusty
Sunday into Monday but not nearly as strong.

COOL AND SHOWERY FOR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: There`s high
confidence in a pronounced cooling trend into the weekend with
highs falling 15-25 degrees below normal by Sunday-Monday.
Scattered showers are looking likely as well, with the best
chances Saturday afternoon into Saturday night, and again Sunday
afternoon into early Monday. Rainfall amounts are still uncertain,
but some localized wetting rains are possible. With cooling
temperatures, light snowfall is also feasible in mountain areas
particularly with any showers Sunday into Monday but limited
accumulations are expected. Patchy near freezing temperatures are
possible Monday and Tuesday mornings.
