Sunshine Continues Today Monday Dry Weather Pattern All of Next Week

This second day of the Memorial Day holiday weekend is underway and we are in the same place we  were yesterday. Low pressure is off the South & North Carolina coast and the satellite loop shows a well defined low level circulation but it is a cold core system and the rain with this is pinned across parts of Virginia, the Delmarva Peninsula and points southward. High clouds have inched northward touching southernmost New Jersey but that is as far north as the moisture should get. There is a sharp cut off from clouds to sunny skies and most of the area will have sunshine today, all day long. Highs will be in the 70s again though it will be cooler along the coast as the onshore flow conitnues.

Most lows tonight will be in the 50s with warmer urban areas finishing close to 60 degrees. Monday we are still under the influence of high pressure across the Northeast and that means we should see another day of sunshine with nothing more than some patchy high clouds. Temperatures Monday will be a little warmer even though the onshore flow conintues. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s most places and the further inland you go, highs will reach into the lower 80s. All in all it is about as nice a three day weekend as you can have.

This new week is going to feature a continuation of the overall pattern and that is dry with temperatures near average for this time of year but it could get very warm to hot late in the week. The Carolina low will linger and weaken over the next few days, unable to make much in the way of northward progress before getting kicked along to the east. That leaves us dealing with only some occasional cloud issues that might sneak in from time to time. Still there will be a fair amount of sunshine this coming week.

We are left basically in a no mans land of a weak pressure pattern Tuesday through Friday before a cold front from a strengthening upper trough to our east brings a cold front through the Northeast and Mid Atlantic states late in the week. Some models try to sneak up a little rain Wednesday into Pennsylvania and New Jersey from the weak coastal low but it doesn’t seem to produce much.

We are going to lean away from the idea of any showers midweek and just go with a partly sunny forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday for much of Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England. Again the onshore wind will keep temperatures in the cooler 60s along the immediate coast. 70s are likely inland and well inland we could see highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

A subtle change in the wind direction and a lack of a new air mass or a cold front will bring temperatures a little high Wednesday with no worse than partly sunny skies. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s along the coast and into the lower 80s inland. Thursday however we will see more of a west wind and with sunshine we could see highs reach the upper 80s to some lower 90s. The same will hold for Friday.

This late week trip to 90 degree highs will be short lived as a cold front should pass Friday night or early Saturday. Perhaps we could see a shower or two with that before temperatures cool off over the weekend especially next Sunday when we should be back into the 70s. No siginificant rain is forecast through next weekend as the very dry pattern continues.
