While storms are expected to ravage parts of the central Plains over the weekend, the wet weather will focus on the Gulf Coast and Eastern Seaboard for Memorial Day Monday.

Today, there will be sunny skies with a high of 77, the weather service said, and there could be patchy fog before 8 a.m.

Part of the reason for the cooling is an increase in wind, and it's from the south. Estimates of wind speed range from single digit to 16 miles per hour, with gusts up to 20 miles per hour on Wednesday. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s. Partly sunny, with a high near 65. Southwest wind 10 to 14 miles per hour. Friday night will be clear with lows in the mid-60s. Calm wind becoming north around 5 miles per hour. Chance late-day or evening shower. Partly cloudy, with a low around 69. Ahead of that front we will have a few showers and thunderstorms drifting through, but most of the rain will be stuck to our west. Cloudy, with a high near 59. The current trend is that the heaviest of the rain will be south of I-80 with scattered showers and storms. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 81. This will keep a few showers in place during the day, but it should dry out in time for the Pittsburgh Pirates game Friday evening. Rain chances return Sunday.

Today: Partly sunny, with a high near 68. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 58. Tonight, showers likely, mainly before 2am.

Friday: Mostly Sunny and Warmer. Northwest wind 7 to 15 miles per hour. Less than a tenth of an inch of rain is expected, and the high will be near 69.

More rainfall will occur Thursday into Friday with significant totals. Southwest wind 9 to 13 miles per hour. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 69. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 55. Increasing clouds, with a low around 54.

Tuesday: A chance of showers. Sun will mix with clouds during the day with highs reaching the low 70s.
