Tuesday, May 28 Forecast Discussion

Our Memorial Day Weekend and today have been picture-perfect for late May with plentiful sunshine and just above normal highs. We will keep temperatures warm through the next 7 days, but our string of dry days will have several chances to come to an end prior to a cold front arriving on Sunday.

High pressure, which has been in control of our weather, will begin to slide a bit more to our east, putting us on the edge of its influence. As our winds above the surface turn southwest, warm and more humid air will begin to arrive on Wednesday. This will start to set the stage for a pop-up shower or storm late Wednesday. The best chance of seeing an afternoon shower or storm will be Thursday when the southern extent of an upper level trough will pass by, adding lift to the area and causing widespread showers and storms. Rain chances taper back off to isolated pop-up variety moving into the weekend.

Our best rain chance for everyone will be on Sunday when a cold front pushes through. Right now, no severe weather is expected and the rain appears to be of the showery variety through the day. Rain will exit late Sunday and we dry out and warm right back up as we work into the beginning of next week.

Temperatures through the next 7 days look to remain above normal in the upper 80s and low 90s. Heat indices won't be a major problem during the day, but locations that see rain showers will see the humidity spike after the rain ends.
