Meteorologist David Murpy has the updated forecast from AccuWeather on Action News Mornings on May 25, 2018. (WPVI)

TODAY: We have mostly sunny skies. Humidity might be a little higher, but it's not too bad. However, the high is a very warm 87, so stay hydrated if you're outside working or playing today.

TONIGHT: We're clear and relatively comfortable with a low of 68.

SATURDAY: Clouds mix with sun in the morning with pop-up, drenching showers and thunderstorms possible in at least some areas during the afternoon. Dewpoints jump up to near 70, signaling a very muggy day. At times, it may even feel oppressive. Our high reaches 87 again. At the Shore, the high is 77 and there's a chance that any rain or storms hold off until late in the day or night. Of course, if you hear thunder at any time, head in from from the beach right away.

SUNDAY: A so-called "backdoor" cold front approaches the area from the northeast and pushes through. Along the way, we'll see an even better chance of showers and thunderstorms. Drenchers are again possible at times, thanks to our very humid air mass. From Saturday night through Sunday, a general .5" to 1" of rain is likely across the region with some areas going higher, especially where you get thunderstorms. Highs hit 80 in Philadelphia and 73 at the Shore. This will probably be the worst day of the holiday weekend for most of us.

MEMORIAL DAY: It's possible that our front has pushed to the south, which limits precipitation to a stray shower or two, but holds low-lying cloud cover in place. In general, we're going with a mostly cloudy forecast with a chance of sunny breaks late in the day. The high slips to 78 in Philadelphia and around 70 at the shore.

TUESDAY: Overall, this looks like a partly sunny day with a warmer high of 86.

WEDNESDAY: We're not as warm, but still nice with a mix of clouds and sun and a high of 79.

THURSDAY: More clouds roll into the area along with some occasional showers. The high is 78.

FRIDAY: This looks like another mostly cloudy day with more showers possible at times. The high: 81.
