Memorial Day Weekend weather forecast ‘pretty good’ in US — with possible flooding

Time to bust out the barbecue — it will be mostly warm and pleasant across the nation over Memorial Day weekend.

But while much of the US may be headed outdoors, parts of Texas and Oklahoma are expected to be hit with “repeated storms” from Saturday through Monday with possible flooding, said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Paul Walker.

“You’re going to have to watch out for flooding in those states,” he said. “The biggest thing is to keep an eye on local rivers and not drive through flooded roadways. It doesn’t take much to sweep car away, and you don’t know what’s under the water.”

Part of the east coast, from southern New England to South Carolina, will experience on-and-off showers on Saturday with possible thunderstorms, along with stretches of sunshine on Sunday and Monday, he said.

“There might be a couple spotty showers but not enough to ruin the weekend,” Walker said, adding that parts of  the Midwestern US, including Ohio, are  expected to see similar weather patterns.

In the Big Apple, it will be partly sunny, with the end of the weekend forecast to be the warmest.

“In New York City, it’s going to be a good weekend to get outside and get some fresh air,” said Walker. “Overall, it’s a going to be a pretty nice weekend.”

There will be some rain on Saturday in the city, giving way to partial sun on Sunday and temperatures reaching a high of 70, Walker said. Monday will be sunny with some clouds and a high of 72.

Much of the Southwestern US, from California to Colorado, will also be warm with highs in the 80s during the three-day weekend. The Pacific Northwest will see scattered showers along with some sunshine and highs in the 70s.
