Saturday morning brought scattered showers and thunderstorms for many but another round will be possible this afternoon and evening.

We'll have a good mix of clouds and sun through the day, if not a little more cloud cover than sunshine. Highs still manage to reach the mid 80s. Showers and storms look to develop later in the afternoon and persist into the early evening hours.

The forecast is basically rinse and repeat for Sunday and Memorial Day and really through the next 7 days.

Even with some cloud cover and the chance for storms, the UV index is going to be very high. In fact, it will only take 20 minutes to burn without sunscreen this weekend, so keep reapplying that sunblock if you're outside. Something else to consider: where will you seek shelter if a storm rolls up on your location? Download the WAAY 31 StormTracker Weather App to monitor storms and any warnings that are issued for your area.

Once we get past the weekend, things don't change much. Next week features mainly afternoon storms and highs holding steady in the mid to upper 80s.
