The beautiful weather that we enjoyed on Monday and Tuesday continues for just a little while longer. High pressure remains firmly in place for Wednesday and we’ll see brilliant sunshine with just a few puffy afternoon cumulus clouds. Temperatures will be a touch warmer than Tuesday, likely reaching 80 degrees in some places, but a southerly breezy will provide a little bit of relief from the heat.
Changes come Thursday, as a cold front moves through the region during the late afternoon. The day starts off dry, but clouds will be on the increase during the morning hours. We won’t receive enough sunshine in the morning to create the instability needed to see stronger storms, but a few rumbles of thunder aren’t out of the question. Temperatures will top off in the mid 70’s.
Rain ends quickly Friday morning leaving a dry day with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will be noticeably chillier only reaching the upper 50’s.
A front planted over the area will bring multiple rounds of heavy rain especially to the south. The rest of the region will see off and on showers throughout the day. Temperatures top off in the 60’s.
I wouldn’t cancel any Mother’s Day plans just yet. The forecast seems to be drying out with only a few leftover rain showers to contend with. In any case, if you have outdoor plans make sure you have a plan b incase you do end up underneath a quick shower.
