FORECAST IN DETAIL
We'll squeeze every last drop of rain we can out of this month as a last bastion of showers should push through early today before we set up for a quick stretch of warm and dry weather. A warming sun this afternoon will stay with us through Tuesday and help to dry out our soggy soils. Moisture will return Tuesday, however, in the form of humidity, foreboding the return of rain in the forecast for the latter half of the week.
Today (Sunday): May may (fun with English!) not be done quite yet with its rainfall totals. A lingering shower or two is possible this morning as a weak disturbance makes its way through. Cooler and drier air in its wake should clear our skies though, and this afternoon is shaping up to be quite pleasant. Our temperatures will near 80 degrees for our afternoon high and winds will be shifting from west to out of the north at 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Skies will continue to clear and many a star should be visible by nightfall. Temperatures will really drop out once the sun goes down and overnight lows will be in the low-to-mid 50s. A few outliers may even touch the 40s again. Light winds out of the north will wind down to near calm overnight. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast into the mid-week...
Tomorrow (Monday): June looks to start off with high pressure building in overhead which means plenty of sunny sky will be available for your enjoyment. Dewpoints will be bottoming out as well meaning a warm and finally DRY day is in store. Afternoon highs will straddle 80 degrees and winds will be shifting from out of the north in the morning to out of the south by the afternoon at less than 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Clear skies begin the evening but our southerly flow brings with it some more humidity and some thin clouds should be moving in by morning. This will also make for warmer conditions overnight with lows only dipping to the low-to-mid 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
A big influx of heat, and some modest humidity, arrives on Tuesday ahead of an approaching cold front. Skies will be mostly sunny in the early day but by late afternoon, pop-up clouds will begin to develop as we warm into the upper-80s to near 90. A stray shower is also possible (<30%) in the evening/overnight as the front edges closer. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday begins another stretch of unsettled weather as yet again a cold front stalls overhead. Temperatures will remain mild, in the upper 70s, but chances for developing showers and thunderstorms rise to near 50% with most of the activity likely in the afternoon or evening. Confidence: Medium
