TODAY: Partly Sunny, Stray Evening Shower. Hi 73.

TONIGHT: Cloudy, Light Showers. Lo 57.

TUESDAY: Mostly Cloudy, Stray Showers. Hi 70.

After a hot and humid weekend with downpours and a few t-storms, this week could not be more different. We’ll be fighting clouds for much of the week with cooler temperatures and less humid air. While passing showers are possible, most of the week looks dry, with Friday being the wettest day.

Plan for a few sprinkles this evening, with some light showers (mainly south of RT. 30) overnight. Most places will only see a few hundredths of an inch of rain. Stubborn clouds last into Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with temperatures near 70 for the afternoon. A period of steady rain is expected Friday as we enter the extended Memorial Day weekend. What happens after Friday is very tricky to predict. Some model guidance suggests we clear Saturday with temperatures nearing 90 Sunday and Monday. Other data suggests we stay damp and cool during the entire weekend. I would feel more confident in the weekend forecast after a few more days worth of data. Any weekend forecast should be taken with a grain of salt. Check back Wednesday and we will have much greater confidence on the holiday weekend outlook.
