Thursday, May 16 Afternoon Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Another beautiful day for us as temperatures have pushed 90 for many of us. With us warm today, we will likely have 90 for our high for the first time this year today, which is the climatological average first day for us to see 90 for a high. In other words, the 90s are right on track.

We will see a repeat of the weather through Saturday with clouds increasing through our Saturday in advance of our next system. Rain will stay away until Sunday. Sunday will see a cold front move into the area to bring rain and storms. The good news is severe weather is unlikely and heavy rainfall is also unlikely. Rain will linger into Monday as the front exits to allow for isolated showers and storms.

High pressure will build into the area on Tuesday and intensify as we head into the middle of next week. Highs will make it back to 90 on Tuesday with us likely into the middle 90s by Thursday. There are hints in some of the models that we could be talking upper 90s for Memorial Day Weekend.
