Last Day of May Sunshine Cool Lasting Through Monday
This is the last day of May and we are going out of what has been a crazy month on the cool and dry side. High pressure is building in from the Ohio Valley with cool air coming down out of Canada. We will see plenty of sunshine today with just a few passing clouds. There will be no rain issues. Humidity levels will be quite low and it will also be breezy. In fact humidity levels will be so low that there could be some red flag issues so do be cautious when outdoors today especially in areas where dry brush are obvious. The satellite picture is supportive of nice weather with mainly sunny skies across the region. There are no issues on the radar.
Tonight is going to be very cool with clear skies. Temperatures by morning will be in the 40s to around 50 which for this time of year is rather cool indeed. Monday will be a nice day of sunshine with very dry air. Highs will be again just in the 60s to around or barely over 70 degrees.
The upper flow across the Eastern US will be from the northwest for much of this week This means that weak weather systems will be moving along in that flow and coming through every 24 hours or so until it relaxes at the end of the week.
It looks like we will see some clouds and a few showers to start the day Tuesday before some sunshine breaks out during the day and then maybe another a shower or two Tuesday night. Wednesday should be dry with some sunshine. Then we do it again with another shower or two Wednesday night and some showers and thunderstorms later Thursday with a cold front. We should squeeze in some sunshine in between on Thursday. Tuesday and Wednesday highs will be in the 70s while Thursday’s highs will be in the 80s. After a cold front passes it should turn cooler and drier for Friday. Overall a rather uneventful week with just some minor inconveniences.
