Ready for Summer?? You better be because it arrives this week. This will be one of those “flipping a switch” weeks where the weather pattern and season seemingly changes instantly.
So far, May has been a cool month in much of the region:
This map will look different by May 31.
Today: PERFECTION with sunshine, dry air and afternoon temperatures in the mid 70s.
A carbon copy of today, just a few degrees warmer. Niiiiiiiice.
A warm front will lift across the region on Wednesday, opening the floodgates to some very warm and increasingly humid air. There might be a shower or thunderstorm around.
On Thursday and Friday, expect temperatures to soar well into the 80s with noticeable humidity. Random/pop-up thunderstorms will be a possibility both days, especially in the afternoon.
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND
Looks like more of the same! In fact the hottest weather overall may be on Saturday. There might be spotty thunderstorms each day but I don’t see any washouts.
Look at these temperatures on the GFS ensemble model….WHEW. Time to bust out the pools and A/C.
