Good Monday everyone and welcome to the last full week of May. Temps have been taking a walk on the toasty side over the past several days and may flirt with heat wave status by Memorial Day Weekend. We do have a decent break in the action over the next few days as a cold front swings through the state.
This front will touch off scattered showers and storms today and some of these could be strong. Locally heavy rains will be possible from these boomers as they slowly work eastward. Here’s your regional radar to track the action…
Temps today should hit the 80s outside of any shower and thunderstorm that impacts where you live. Cooler air will then move in behind the front with most areas staying in the 70s on Tuesday. There will likely be some leftover showers and storms to deal with… especially in the east.
That’s when the heat begins to build back in. Highs hit the 80s on Wednesday and then take off from there as a heat ridge builds from the plains states into the east. This shows up well on the European Model…
Highs of 90 degrees or better would be possible during the upcoming holiday weekend. This ridge should have some clusters of thunderstorms roaming around its periphery and that is something we will keep an eye on.
Have a great Monday and take care.
