More unsettled weather is likely for the next few days, with a slight warming and drying trend beginning Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. The warmest and driest day is likely to be Memorial Day itself, where temperatures are forecast to reach normal for the first time in several weeks, meaning somewhere in the low 60s, according to the NWS. The middle of the week is forecast to be relatively dry and seasonably warm, with another possibility of more rain later in the week. The upside is a break in the fire danger and the incredible beauty of a green spring for one of the first times in several years. Get out there! —WG
