Last Updated on Wednesday, May 22 at 7:13 AM...
An area of low pressure that's been parked to our west the past couple days will slowly shift east across the region today. As it does, expect plenty of clouds along with periods of rain. There could also be a few isolated t-storms this afternoon. The clouds and rain will cause cooler highs today in the 60-65º range.
Showers will remain likely tonight, especially through about midnight. The low will then slowly shift east away from the region late tonight. Expect overnight lows in the mid-upper 40s.
Sunshine returns Thursday thanks to high pressure building in from the west. Even with lots of sunshine, temps will still be below average with highs in the mid 60s. A northerly breeze around 10-15 mph will make it feel even a bit cooler.
Looking Ahead... Friday will be dry as well with highs in the upper 60s. An unsettled stretch of weather then looks to start late Friday night into Saturday with a chance for some scattered showers and t-storms. Rain will then be possible each and every day through the Memorial Day holiday weekend and through most of next week as well. However, these will not be all day rain events... but periodic chances for rounds of showers and t-storms. We'll see plenty of dry hours as well, so don't go cancelling those outdoor plans just yet. Best advice is to stay tuned for the latest forecast as we fine tune the timing of these rain chances and check the radar before you head outdoors... or if you have outdoor plans that day.
Temps will remain below average with highs in the 60s through Sunday, then warm to around 70º on Memorial Day. Warmer temps in the upper 70s to low 80s are then expected by the middle of next week.
Have a great Wednesday and don't forget the umbrella! -Bill Graul
