Memorial Day Weekend Weather Outlook – 2019

The long 3 day weekend is upon us and I have some great news… it’s going to be a nice one in the weather department. We will see a return of spring-like weather with temperatures generally in the 60’s and 70’s during the day across the Palmer Divide (depending on your elevation.)

Saturday and Sunday will feature blue sky days with little to no chance for storms and rain, a nice change and a great warm up and dry out from what we’ve had!

By Monday things begin to change a little bit, but not until later in the day. The first part of memorial day will start out mostly sunny with clouds beginning to build in the afternoon. Models show a cold front moving in later in the day, but not a ton of agreement on exactly when.

Suffice to say, expect scattered storms on Monday afternoon with windy conditions likely picking up by the evening hours. The good news is as of right now the storm chance looks relatively small so most areas won’t see an issue, but definitely keep an eye out if you have outdoor plans in the afternoon and evening!

Widely scattered storms will be possible Monday afternoon.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday weekend!

Let us never forget the men and women who died while serving to protect our freedoms and this great country. Happy Memorial Day.
