The Memorial Day holiday weekend forecast offers a return to summer-like temperatures and increasing chances of thunderstorms -- especially on Monday.

The timing of a warm front will determine the earliest we could see storms. Rain chances hold off until at least late Sunday afternoon. That initial chance will remain low and most activity will be isolated, so it should be easy to go forward with any outdoor plans. Monday, however, has a much better chance for rain and scattered thunderstorms through the day.

The following week will be above average temperature wise as a jet stream ridge sets up over the eastern United States. But we'll still be under the influence of any upper air disturbance, so the unsettled weather pattern still gives central Illinois daily chances of a storm or two -- but by no means a wash out for any of the days in the upcoming week.

THE 7-DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: Look for highs around 80 Sunday and Memorial Day; low to mid 80s Tuesday through Friday; and, upper 70s Saturday. Overnight lows will drop to the mid to upper 60s Sunday through Friday night.
