Severe Weather Threat Late Thursday Memorial Day Holiday Weekend Forecast
One of short range models has a view that matches up well to the idea of the marine influence along the coast. The WRF develops strong storms in Pennsylvania that weaken once they reach the coast. If the warm air pushes further north than the NAM's idea could be a better representation but for now I'm leaning to the WRF's idea. The timing is during the late afternoon and evening.On to Friday which should be mainly sunny with highs in the 70s so there are no issues for getaway day. As far as the holiday weekend goes, Saturday during the day should feature a mix of sun and clouds as another cold front approaches. We could have the same issues Saturday as we do for Thursday regarding the south wind along the coast with a better chance for thunderstorms as you head away from coastal areas for Saturday night into Sunday morning.Sunday is looking like a very warm day with some sunshine with highs in many places reaching the 80s including along the coast where the wind will be more from the west south west rather than the south. Another cold front arrives for Sunday night with the chance for thunderstorms yet again for much of the area. At least the daytime Sunday will be free of rain for the most part and we should have a mix of sun and clouds for much of the day. Monday Memorial Day should be dry with some sunshine as that front will be to our south. Temperatures will be in the mid 70s to lower 80s. It looks like Monday will be rain free from start to finish with the next chance of showers coming in on Tuesday as another warm front cold front combination begins to move in. The bottom line for the weekend is that for all three days the days should be dry and thunderstorm risks will be confined to Saturday night (after sunset) and Sunday night (also after sunset).
