Memorial Day will bring summer heat and there's even a slight chance of some rain, but it's likely no precipitation will upset parades and other outdoor activities.
"Any time it's hot, there's a chance of rain," said National Weather Service forecaster Paul Head. "(But) the air is going to be much more stable. The ridge of high pressure will be building over us. That will block thunderstorms from developing."
It will be hot and humid, Head said, with just a 20 percent chance of rain.
The Jazz Ambassadors face the audience and the flags as they perform the National Anthem on Sunday at Brandon Park’s bandshell. The traveling Army field band, which is on the road 100 days of the year, gave a free performance that was well attended by area residents.
The high temperature will be near 90 degrees.
"It's a little more typical of July than late May," he said.
The better chance of rain is Tuesday, according to Head.
Today's local Memorial Day events include:
9 a.m. - Civil War remembrance ceremony, Wildwood Cemetery
9 a.m. - Parade on Main Street in Hughesville
10 a.m. - Parades in Mansfield and Wellsboro
11 a.m. - Parades in Muncy and Turbotville
2 p.m. - Parade in Loganton
"Now Tuesday, we have a cool front coming in from the West. As the ridge moves off to the east, we will have thunderstorms on Tuesday afternoon," he predicted.
The chance of rain is 50 percent with rainfall amounts between a tenth and a quarter of an inch possible.
It will be mostly cloudy with a high of 84.
Wednesday will be partly sunny and Thursday mostly sunny. The high will reach 81 Wednesday and 76 Thursday.
Night-time lows will be in the mid 50s, according to the National Weather Service.
"On Friday we will probably get into more showers,," Head said.
Otherwise, it will be partly sunny Friday with a high of 71 as temperatures will remain comfortable through the end of the week.
The start to the weekend could be wet. The National Weather Service is calling for a 40 percent of showers Friday night and a 30 percent chance of rain Saturday.
