Mon, Tue and Wed forecast was okay. Too cool for Mon/Tue, and too much sun for Wed. Other than that not bad.
Today ... well, not close. The remnant of Tropical Storm Bonnie went to our west, and we are in the soupy tropical atmosphere with some light showers and maybe a rumble of thunder. Friday is the day for thunderstorms. And Saturday is our transition day from summer like warmth and humidity to spring like cool. Here are the details:
Thursday: Areas of drizzle/mist. Heavier shower possible. Humid. 74.
Friday: Partly sunny. Warm. Humid. Afternoon showers and storms likely. 84.
Saturday: Early clouds then clearing. Chance for a shower. Cooler. Breezy. 72.
Sunday: Mostly sunny. Breeze at times. Cool. 65.
Monday: Sunny. Cool. 65.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy. Chance for showers. 65.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy. Chance for rain. 68.
The middle of next week will feature an attempt to see it warm up. If the warm front moves north, then we could soar well into the 80's. If it doesn't, then is this could lead to a cool and wet period Tue/Wed/Thu. Interesting set-up to predict. After this passes, a real warm up could begin in earnest. But that is getting well into the future.
The weekend will start of wet today, and for parts of Sat (if not most of the day). Then improving for Sunday. Memorial Day looks wonderful. And then some summer time heat builds for Tue - Fri.
Today: Showers/periods of rain and drizzle/mist. 66.
Saturday: Showers likely. 66.
Sunday: Partly sunny. 68.
Memorial Day: Mostly sunny. 74.
Tuesday: Sunny. Warm. 80.
Wednesday: Sunny. Warm. 84.
Thursday: Sunny. Very warm. 86.
Friday: Mostly sunny then showers and thunderstorms likely. Humid. 86.
The end of the month does look summery. And dry. April was very wet. But May has been relatively dry. Could we have a drier summer this year? We shall see. But I would not be surprised. Time will tell.
The last few days have been wonderful. Sunshine for the most part, warm, and any showers were basically late or overnight. Not bad. Finally feels like the middle of May.
Now on to the new week. Changes are coming. I said the forecast was low confidence, and it still is for Wed-Fri. But the picture is clearer for Sun - Tue. Still some doubt about how much sunshine breaks through the low clouds coming off the ocean with the easterly flow. Let's hope for more sun than currently forecast. It looks drier for the first part of the week (one issue could be light mist drizzle on Tue?) and wetter the second half. We will have to see.
Sunday: Clouds and partial sunshine. Cooler yet. 67.
Monday: Clouds and partial sunshine. 61.
Tuesday: Cloudy. 57.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy. Chance for showers. 55.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy. Chance for showers. 58.
Friday: Clouds and partial sunshine. Chance for showers. 65.
Saturday: Sun and clouds. Chance for a shower. 70.
(Side Note: I was not able to update yesterday or Monday, something with website host. Sorry, but I did try.)
Yes, summer-like weather appears to be coming to our area soon. It will be welcome. This chilly/cold windy damp weather is not that enjoyable. But now, its all changing. This does not mean we won't have some chilly miserable weather again, as it appears we will early next week. But it won't be the prevailing pattern. It will be the exception, not the rule.
Wednesday: Sunny. Beautiful. 62.
Thursday: Sunshine then increasing clouds. 66.
Friday: Sun and clouds. Showers and thunderstorms likely late afternoon/evening. 80.
Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny. Cooler. 67. (Tricky. Depends on cloudy cover).
Sunday: Partly sunny. Showers likely late and overnight. 66.
Monday: Cloudy. Chance for rain. 58.
Tuesday: Cloudy. Chance for rain. 52.
Note: Forecast early next week is also tricky. The location of the slow moving low pressure area as it gets trapped by the building ridge will be key to rain or sun, chilly or early summer. Low confidence for Mon-Tue right now.
A nice way to begin the weekend. Partly sunny, seasonal with temps around 60. Dry alos. Not bad. Sadly, Sunday will be very different. Wet. Cool. And it will last into the very beginning of Monday. Some rain will return mid to late week. Details:
Sunday: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Some heavy. 52.
Monday: Showers end early. Becoming partly sunny. 48.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. 59.
Wednesday: Sunshine then increasing clouds. Showers likely after dark. 65.
Thursday: Cloudy. Rain. Chance for thunderstorms. Rain could be heavy at times. 60.
Friday: Partly sunny. Chance for a shower. 55.
Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny. 63.
