Memorial Day weekend is almost here and it's looking rather nice. This will set us up for a nice day on Saturday, with a blend of clouds and sunshine and mild temperatures.

It's expected to be partly sunny on Sunday, with a high of 72. Another batch of showers crosses the region Saturday night and as I mentioned earlier, hopefully departs, leaving us with partly to mostly sunny skies for Sunday.

As one of the coolest months of May in recent history comes to a close, Phoenix-area temperatures are expected to creep up but remain pleasant over Memorial Day weekend. Lows dip into the upper 50s to middle 60s. Now, temperatures are slowly falling through the 90s and 80s, and lows will settle into the low 70s by sunrise tomorrow morning. And some more good news for the holiday weekend-no particular day is going to be a washout! A couple stray thunderstorms are possible, especially later during the day. By Thursday and Friday, temperatures could be up to the 80s. Memorial Day Monday is dry with highs into the 70s inland, cooler at the coast with highs into the low 60s.

A warm afternoon across the area as temperatures warm into the upper 70s to around 80. There's also the chance for a couple isolated showers or thunderstorms.

Africans win United Nations vote on Britain's last colony
The Resolution calls on London to "colonial administration" within six months from the Islands to be deducted. In 2017, only 15 countries including Britain and the USA voted to oppose a request for the ICJ ruling.

By Memorial Day, we will be dry and not as warm and humid.

The system will sweep through late Saturday evening, May 25 and wrap up by around 3 a.m. Sunday, May 26 ahead of a warm front that will lead to summer-like temperatures.

It is called the unofficial start of summer - and the weather is expected to live up to the hype.
