Monday, May 5 Forecast Discussion

High pressure has been sitting off to our south at the surface through the weekend, which has allowed temperatures to make it to the upper 80s. The surface high pressure will start to shift more to the east causing moisture to begin to return as early as Wednesday as clouds start to filter back. The upper level ridge will build in as well, maxing out in intensity on Tuesday which should be the warmest of the week.

Clouds thicken up Thursday ahead of our next cold front which looks to start impacting us Friday morning. Friday will see showers and storms across the area as the cold front passes. It will linger into Saturday before really clearing Sunday and Monday. Mother's Day and Monday will have the potential to see isolated afternoon showers and storms, but it looks like most of those two days should be dry.

After temperatures max out Tuesday, we will slowly drop until our highs on Friday will struggle to 80 degrees with the potential that we stay in the 70s if rain arrives early enough and is persistent enough. We will climb back into the mid 80s by Monday as temperatures warm again with rain chances dropping.
