Ending On A High Note

The workweek ended on a high note with bright sunshine and noticeably warmer temperatures. Memorial Day weekend weather looks favorable. Saturday will feature lots of sunshine, very warm temperatures, and hit-or-miss late-day and nighttime showers and thunderstorms. Sunday will have a little bit better coverage of showers/thunderstorms, with somewhat lesser coverage for Memorial Day. All-in-all, it’s a drier weather pattern and one more favorable for your outdoor plans.

Forecast Discussion

The Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer, and it’s going to start to feel that way after some unseasonably cool, wet weather this past week.

Friday had a big boost in temperatures under mostly sunny skies. Saturday will be warm and nice, but there will be a threat for late day or nighttime shower or thunderstorm as a frontal zone sets up shop from Missouri to the Mid-Atlantic.

Sunday will probably be a better coverage day for showers and thunderstorms as the frontal boundary inches closer. The front comes through on Memorial Day with a lingering risk for a daytime shower or thundershower.

Behind the front, we expect mostly dry weather after the holiday into the middle part of next week.
