Forecast Discussion

A ripple of low-pressure traversing a frontal zone to our south generated a period of light rain this morning and early this afternoon. Expect a decreasing cloudiness trend tonight with chilly mid-May temperatures.

The rest of the workweek and through the weekend will feature intervals of sunshine and clouds and a gradual warming trend, although temperatures remain below average through the period.

By next week, the jetstream configuration will finally begin to morph to something more typical for May. Temperatures will finally reach or surpass normal levels. We may even have some afternoon pop-up showers show up.
