FORECAST IN DETAIL
Please don't shoot the messenger. The good news is, the dry will likely outweigh the wet for the remainder of the long weekend. The bad news is, the wet stays in the forecast for a while. Gulf moisture that flooded out Florida this past week will combine with a stalling cold front over the region to keep a fair chance for showers and t-storms in the forecast through next weekend.
Today (Sunday): At least it should stay dry for the majority of the day. Clouds will likely increase as a cold front approaches and by the afternoon a few t'storms (30%) may develop. A lot of places will stay dry. High temperatures should reach the low 80s. Summer stickiness will be present on a wind from the southwest at around 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: We'll call for a 30% of showers and thunderstorms overnight. By morning, some fog may develop, particularly in any areas that receive some rain today. In general though it will be a rather warm and sticky evening with temperatures only dropping to the low-to-mid 60s under mostly cloudy skies. Winds will be light and variable. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through your Memorial Day and into the mid-week...
Tomorrow (Memorial Day): This cold front apparently plans on spending Memorial Day with us meaning at least the threat of sunburn won't hinder your outdoor BBQ plans. On the other hand, the threat of showers and t'storms may (50% chance). It won't be a washout, but many will see at least a passing shower. Greatest coverage will again be during the afternoon. Skies will stay mostly cloudy with afternoon highs near 80 degrees. Winds will be out of the north at 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Cloudy skies and the chance for showers continue into the evening and overnight. Overnight lows will be in the low-to-mid 60s, and winds will be light out of the north-northeast Confidence: Medium-High
Not much will be changing on Tuesday and Wednesday. Intermittent showers (40% chance) will continue to pester the area. Afternoon highs will range from the upper 60s Tuesday (due to a cool wind from the east) to the low 70s on Wednesday with overnight lows near 60.Confidence: Medium
