Stubborn clouds for Tuesday, scattered storms Wednesday evening

Forecast

Hot Wednesday with scattered PM storms...

THIS EVENING: Showers Ending. Steady Temperatures Around 60. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

OVERNIGHT: Cloudy, Steady Temperatures. Lo 58. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: AM Clouds, PM Sun. Hi 80. Winds: S 5-10 mph.

What an abrupt change from yesterday! After highs in the low 90s, we struggled to stay above 60 this afternoon. Clouds will remain locked in tonight as southeast flow continues, but showers will end from north to south this evening. Temperatures will remain steady in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees overnight through Tuesday morning.

Tuesday will begin cloudy but we should see gradual clearing during the afternoon. As the sun emerges, temperatures will bounce back into the upper 70s. Most of the day though will be spent in the 60s as we wait for the clouds to scour out.

All bets are off for Wednesday as southwest winds kick up ahead of a cold front. Heat and humidity will surge north during the afternoon as highs push into the low 90s. The approaching front will result in some scattered afternoon storms, some of which could be strong given adequate shear that will be in place. Activity will be hit-and-miss though so certainly not a washout of a day. Thursday looks dry and still warm with highs in the mid-80s.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: The holiday weekend looks dreary. A trough will settle over the northeast, keeping clouds around and showers especially for Friday and parts of Saturday. The rain will be steady at times, which will make any outdoor plans tough. Highs will struggle greatly with temperatures perhaps staying in the 50s for most of Saturday and maybe a bounce back to near 70 Sunday. The good news is that Memorial Day itself looks pleasant at this point with sunshine and highs back to near seasonable levels.
