Splendid Weather Today, Warmer this Weekend

As expected, we started out this morning with some rather chilly temperatures for this time of the year!  The comfortable conditions with low humidity will continue today as we expect mainly sunny skies.  High temperatures this afternoon will top out in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.  While low temperatures tonight should not be as low as what we saw Friday morning, readings will be cooler than normal for this time of the year.  We project lows by Saturday morning between 53 and 58 degrees.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND:  Humidity levels will gradually creep upward this weekend.  Our model guidance suggests the majority of the weekend will be dry.  However, with increasing moisture and disturbances moving across the area Monday, rain and thunderstorm chances will go up on the holiday.  We expect highs to be in the mid to perhaps upper 80s Saturday and Sunday.  Daytime highs on Monday could be slightly cooler due to more clouds and rain around at times.   Please be careful on Monday if you’re going to be out and about, especially on the state waterways.  Remember to head indoors at the first sight of lightning or if you hear thunder.
It appears much of next week will feature a summer-like weather pattern.  Scattered showers and storms will be in the forecast each day, Tuesday through Friday. with highs generally running in the low to mid 80s.
