Warmer, increasing amounts of sunshine for Memorial Day

Top Stories

Feeling summer-like most of this week...

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Low 56F. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

MEMORIAL DAY: Cloudy start, afternoon clearing. High 76F. Winds: S-10 5 mph.

TUESDAY: Warm and muggy. High 83F. Winds: SE 5 mph.

The clouds stuck with us most of the day as expected and this will continue tonight. Lows will drop off to seasonable levels in the mid 50s Monday morning.

Memorial Day will start off cloudy, but sunshine will break out by the afternoon which will help boost temperatures into the mid-70s. It will turn a bit muggy as well, fitting for the unofficial start of summer. One thing that will be noticeable the next few days is something we haven’t seen much of this spring… a light wind! Winds should stay under 10 mph through Thursday, adding even more motivation to take plans outside!

The dry, but warm and muggy stretch of weather will last through Wednesday as a ridge of high pressure maintains control overhead. The approach of a weak disturbance will trigger scattered thunderstorms by Thursday afternoon, with a better chance for storms late-day on Friday with a cold front. Friday appears to be the warmest and most humid day this week with highs expected to reach the mid 80s. By next weekend, cooler and drier air will build into the commonwealth. Depending on if the front can clear our southern counties Saturday, a few showers may linger, but by Sunday, sunny skies and comfortable temperatures expected.
