If you liked today, you should enjoy Mother's Day on Sunday as conditions will not be changing all that much. The showers of late this afternoon will quickly fall apart after sunset leaving us with mostly cloudy skies and a light northerly wind overnight. Any brief clearing in the clouds could result in patchy fog by early morning. That will be followed by mostly cloudy skies for much of the day Sunday and about a 20% chance of some passing, mostly light rain showers. The clouds and a light northerly wind should keep temperatures on the mild side with morning lows generally in the 50s and daytime highs in the mid-upper 70s.
Monday will also be on the mild side, but with little or no mention of rain. We will still have a light northerly wind and those northerly winds are bringing somewhat drier surface air into the state. So, our morning lows will be in the mid 50s for Mon and Tue mornings. But, we will also see more sunshine during the day so look for daytime temperatures to be in the upper 70s for Monday afternoon and near 80 on Tuesday. The winds Tuesday will be on the light and variable side as a surface high pressure ridge gradually slides across the state during the day.
By Wednesday, we will see a return to southerly winds and lots of sunshine, so look for temperatures to be warming up. In fact, daytime highs should be in the 80s for the rest of the week and the coming weekend and our overnight lows will be warming into the 60s during that period as well. At this time, there is little or no mention of rain as we are in a relatively quiet period, considering this is the month of May. In fact, the next cool front is not expected until perhaps Monday of that next week and that also may be our next decent chance of rain.
So, enjoy this relatively mild weather while you can as the summer is just around the corner. As always, stay tuned and check back for updates.
