Wednesday, May 16 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Wednesday! Pop-up showers and storms have still been able to fire up in our area early this morning. As we head towards sunrise, the coverage of this precipitation should diminish though clouds will still hang around. It is due these partly cloudy skies throughout the day that we may get just short of the 90 degree mark. Daytime heating will still lead to some isolated showers and thunderstorms developing in the late-afternoon/early evening. A stray storm can’t be ruled out overnight, but most of us should remain partly cloudy with lows in the mid-to-upper-60s. Less cloud cover Thursday morning will help us heat up to the 90 degree mark for afternoon highs. Similar to Wednesday, isolated showers and storms look to fire up that afternoon, with that same pattern on Friday. No severe weather is expected for Wednesday-Friday, but some storms could contain gusty winds.

A ridge will begin to take shape this weekend and that should decrease our rain chances and warm us up well into the 90s for Saturday and Sunday. A pop-up shower or thunderstorm can’t be ruled out for both these days, but coverage will be less than what we’ll see Wednesday-Friday. Highs hover around the 90 degree mark into next week as well, with more pop-up shower/storm chances Monday and Tuesday. Morning lows will be in the upper-60s throughout most of the next seven days.
