    Around sunset, most of the rain will come to an end. After midnight, most of the clouds will clear away, and the rain chances go back down to zero. The temperatures will still be warm and muggy tonight. Lows will be in the lower to mid 70s. On Memorial Day, I cannot rule out a couple stray showers. Therefore, I do have a 20% chance for some rain. These showers will be from the outflow from Alberto. If you plan on spending some time outside, it should be a nice day to do so.
