Some of the finest weather imaginable for this time of year continues today courtesy of High pressure. That area of High pressure will remain in control through Friday and even into a portion of Saturday setting the stage for an abundance of sunshine, comfortable levels of humidity, and most noticeably, quite the warm-up. Temperatures should climb easily to near 80 degrees today. The mercury will climb even higher Friday and Saturday with highs making their way into the lower and even middle 80s. As we work our way into the weekend, High pressure loses its firm grip over the area allowing a cold front poised to our north to slip southward. The combination of moisture pooling ahead of that front and the warmth in place will trigger a few showers by Saturday night. While this may put a damper in evening plans, at this point, it looks like most of day on Saturday will be dry, albeit very warm for late May. There is a better chance of more showers to pop on Sunday as that front moves closer. The number of showers popping will be held back somewhat because the front will fall apart as it slips through the area. This is why we are cautiously optimistic that the day will not be a washout. The Memorial Day holiday itself on Monday will also feature a few showers or even a couple of garden variety thunderstorms. but will also feature a fair amount of "dry-time", so don't cancel any plans. Just be flexible with those plans for some of those passing drops.
