Few Showers; Decreasing Clouds Late

Most locations are within 1" of record rainfall for May with 6 days to go. Some locations will break the records today; most will break those records during the weekend.
We'll have a few lingering showers early this evening. Showers end tonight with decreasing clouds. Friday brings the long-awaited break from the rain. CELEBRATE! Saturday is warmer with more clouds and a thundershower possible by afternoon. Showers and storms are more likely Saturday night leading into scattered coverage Sunday. Memorial Day will be drier, only isolated afternoon thundershowers.

Forecast Discussion

The big player in our weather is an upper level low moving into the Northeast overnight. Counter-clockwise flow around that feature brings gusty winds today with some lingering showers. Temperatures are much cooler.

Friday begins with breezy conditions. But "pleasant" is featured word Friday, especially in contrast to the last 9 days.

A fast flow develops aloft with a couple of disturbances zipping east from Missouri to Virginia. Temperatures warm quickly Saturday as high pressure centered in the Gulf pumps warm air northward. Showers and storms are possible Saturday afternoon with increased coverage Saturday night. We keep scattered showers and storms Sunday, ending Sunday evening.

The frontal boundary setting up from Virginia to the Ohio Valley this weekend sinks just to our south Memorial Day. The result will be drier weather; however, I cannot completely rule out an afternoon thundershower.

We catch a breather Tuesday and Wednesday. High high pressure will be in control. Temperatures will be seasonal with partly cloudy skies.
