Weather: Mix of sun and showers through the weekend (5/24 AM)

Local News
Friday May 24th

Good morning! Happy Friday!

Low, stubborn cloud cover and lingering light showers or sprinkles kick things off for us Friday. Those clouds will clear at a snail’s pace today, eventually returning us to some blue sky just before sunset this evening. The temp inches up from the 50s this morning into the low to mid 60s this afternoon. That’s with a breezy north wind around 15 mph sustained, gusting to 25 mph. Tonight, clear and calm with a low in the 40s.

Saturday starts out on a sunny note, but clouds (thin, high cirrus clouds at first) fill in during the afternoon. Late Saturday afternoon into Saturday night, scattered showers arrive, with a couple of embedded thunderstorms possible. That continues overnight, wrapping up around daybreak Sunday. Saturday afternoon, near 70 degrees with a south breeze of 5 to 15 mph; then dropping into the 50s at night.

Sunday is a bit of a wild card. It will be a partly sunny day, meaning some cloud cover, but also occasional breaks of blue. There is also a slim chance for a brief shower or weak thunderstorm. It’s not an extremely wet, soggy day by any means, and some miss out on the rain entirely, but there will be some stubborn clouds. Low to mid 70s. Wind, light from the south shifting to out of the northwest at 5-10 mph.

Monday, Memorial Day, the temp begins in the low 50s and then climbs to near 70 degrees. While nice weather Sunday is hit-or-miss, Monday is a bullseye! All sunshine makes for a great culmination to, for some, the long weekend.

TGIF! Have a marvelous weekend!
