Much Warmer Weekend Ahead

Stuck in the muck today with that low level moisture, an onshore wind and patchy drizzle in place.  With highs only in the mid 50s for most, we certainly have some work to do to get that much improved weekend weather.

For this evening, what you see is what you get, patchy fog, drizzle and temps stuck in the 50s.  We’ll have to wait for a warm front to come through tomorrow morning, to change that wind to the south and southwest and usher in much warmer weather.  To go along with that warm front, there will be a few showers tomorrow morning from pre-dawn, through sunrise.  By late morning, a few breaks in the clouds appear, and that’s when temps jump up.  By mid afternoon, many towns are at least in the mid 70s.  Many of the late morning hours, through the mid afternoon hours are dry. However, I can’t rule out a passing shower/thunderstorm mid to late afternoon with some instability thanks to the warmer and muggier air in place.   There will be a higher chance of showers/thunder in the evening and at night with a cold front passing through.

Don’t fret, that cold front does more good than bad.  It’s more of a change of direction in the wind, and humidity lowering front, as opposed to a temp drop off.  In fact, with full sunshine, we’ll warm into the mid to upper 70s again on Mother’s Day.  This time, with very low humidity.  The only issue you may have is a westerly breeze that gusts to 25mph.  That could blow Mom’s napkin around if you’re taking her out for an outdoor lunch.  Good problem to have, right?

Monday looks great as well with highs near 80.  There will be just a slight risk of a late-day thunderstorm.

A backdoor cold front brings back onshore winds Tuesday, and cooler weather to go along with it.

Enjoy the weekend, and Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there!
