I played in a golf outing Wednesday and it was COLD! The wind was especially tough. Thankfully, today will be much nicer. Not as windy with temperatures getting to around 70. Still below average but better than Wednesday’s 63.
Friday looks seasonable with a warm front approaching from the west. This front might spark showers late Friday and Friday night….but overall Friday looks like a nice day with a mix of sun and clouds.
SEVERE WEATHER THREAT SATURDAY
A BIG surge of moisture will occur on Saturday with dewpoints getting into the 60s to near 70. Temperatures could reach the upper 80s. All this while a strong cold front approaches from the north and west. This is a good setup for strong to severe thunderstorms across the Valley. The threat looks to be mainly in the late afternoon and evening but we will hone in on the timing over the next day or so.
The Storm Prediction Center has the whole area in the “Slight Risk” zone:
“Slight” can be a deceiving word in these outlooks. When we are in a “Slight Risk” area, chances of severe weather are usually quite a bit higher than a typical day and you should be weather aware.
What we may have is some damp weather to start and then a period of dry and hot weather. As we get deeper into the afternoon, storms may fire to our northwest and try to head southeast. The HIGHEST risk overall MIGHT be east of I-79 in PA but again…details we will work out in the coming hours.
Weather For Weather Geeks will have more on this threat this evening and I will probably do a separate blog post as well.
MUCH NICER SUNDAY
Sunday will be, hands down, the better half of the weekend. Much less humid with some sunshine and a breeze.
An unremarkable pattern in the longer range….fairly typical early summer stuff overall.
2 DEGREE GUARANTEE
A great end to May and start to June. The streak continues!
