Stretch of cooler weather for mid May

Forecast

Cooler weather looks like it's here to stay...

THIS EVENING: Gradual Clearing, Cooler & Breezy. Temperatures Dropping Into the Low 60s.

OVERNIGHT: Partly Cloudy, Breezy & Cooler. Lo 46. Winds: NW 10-15 mph. Gusts to 25 mph.

THURSDAY: Partly Cloudy, Cooler & Breezy. Hi 65. Winds: NW 10-15 mph. Gusts to 25 mph.

Rainfall reports Wednesday morning averaged between 0.5″ to 1″ before skies cleared into Wednesday afternoon.

Tonight will continue to see clearing skies as temperatures drop into the 40s. The upcoming patter favors a stretch of cooler than average conditions over the next 7 days. The last time we experience a similar stretch of cooler than normal conditions was mid February!

The end of the week will be cool as a trough sets up over the northeast. It will be unsettled at times this weekend with a round of showers expected Friday afternoon and potentially more widespread rain for Mother’s Day afternoon. As a pocket of cold air moves overhead Saturday, a shower or two can’t be ruled out even then. Highs will only reach the low 60s this weekend and lows will be chilly in the low 40s, but frost concerns are not expected. By early next week, we dry out but stay seasonably cool with highs in the mid to upper 60s. It appears the cool air is here to stay as we kick off May. No more 80° weather in sight. Stay tuned!
