Our Memorial Day weather provided lots of sunshine which many of us spent the day outdoors. Temperatures were slightly cooler than average, and it will be cool again tonight under mostly clear skies and light winds. Most will wake up to temperatures around 50 degrees Tuesday morning.
Abundant cloud cover will return tomorrow as a weak disturbance moves through the Great Lakes, but no rain is expected. These clouds will be higher up into the atmosphere so temperatures should have no issues rebounding into the upper 70s with milky sunshine. All in all, it will be a nice start to the week.
A mix of clouds and sun can be expected for Wednesday, along with a stray shower or storm chance late in the day. The atmosphere appears to be capped locally which should prevent much in the way of any rain. That chances by Thursday as a trough digs into the Great Lakes. Ahead of it, we’ll see an impressive moisture return as humidity becomes much more noticeable during the afternoon. With it, thunderstorms are expected, and a few may be strong given elevated winds aloft. It’s too early for specifics, but the main time-frame to watch would be between 2-7p. A few more storms could pop Friday, but coverage will be less than Thursday’s activity.
By the weekend, any lift will move to our northeast as a ridge builds overhead. This means a mainly dry weekend with well above normal temps by Sunday. This weather pattern will hold into the beginning of next week as 90-degrees becomes a good possibility by Monday. Get ready…summer looks to be here to stay!
