As restless residents and holiday travelers venture into the Jackson Hole valley over Memorial Day weekend, they'll be greeted by newly reopened national park gates, new grizzly bear cubs and some typically erratic spring mountain-town weather. 

The National Weather Service is predicting the long weekend could see everything from thunderstorms, and even snow at higher elevations, on Friday, Saturday and into Sunday. But by Sunday, the sun should be sneaking out —and staying out — to make way for barbecues and picnics on Monday. 

Here are the details to help you make the most out of your holiday weekend: 

Friday: A slight chance of showers is predicted between noon and 3 p.m., then a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 3 p.m. The day will be partly sunny, with a high near 52. Expect west-northwest winds from 6 to 8 mph. The chance of precipitation is 20%.

Saturday: There may be snow showers before 8 a.m.; rain and snow showers between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.; then rain showers after 9 a.m. Some thunder is also possible. The high in the mid-40s, with west-southwest winds around 10 mph. The chance of precipitation is 80%, and new snow accumulation of less than a half-inch is possible.

Sunday: Expect a slight chance of showers between noon and 3 p.m., then a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 3 p.m. Skies will be partly sunny, with a high in the mid-50s. The chance of precipitation is 20%.

Memorial Day: Mostly sunny, with a high near 62.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny with a high in the low 70s.
