Pretty much wall to wall sunshine today. And warm too. Enjoy it. It will feel like a distant memory by tomorrow. Yes, it will be a rainy Saturday with very cool conditions. The rain should last most of the day and it might be heavy at times (esp. to our SE). Expect around 1” of rain with locally higher amounts.
The pattern continues to evolve toward the general idea of a western trough and eastern ridge. The ridge will really take control starting early next week. There is still the chance for showers on Mon – Wed, but there will be some sunshine also with temps into the 70s to near 80 by Wed. After that, some early summer heat Thu – Mon. Temps look to rise into the mid and upper 80s. It will become more humid too. Not quite the dog days of summer, though.
There will be daily chances for a shower/storm in the afternoon and evening from Thu – Mon. The best chance being Sat and Sun with a dying front trying to drop out of Canada.
Into the first week of June the ridge will relax some and allow some cooling, but nothing as cool as we have had most of the month so far.
The summer pattern is beginning, and I believe will lead to a warmer and drier than average summer over-all. More on this after Memorial Day.
