Mostly Dry Memorial Day Weekend (With The Exception Of Sunday Being Weird)

High temperatures (with the exception of Sunday) will be right around average for this time of the year.

Rain chances today and Saturday are low. Most of the activity will be to our south. If you do see any rain, there could be some lightning, gusty winds and heavy rain with it. Good news is that it wouldn’t hang around for long.

Sunday cloud cover and rain chances will increase thanks to a low-pressure system (not a tropical storm or hurricane) that is currently off the coast of the Carolinas. Models currently disagree on exactly where it will end up by Sunday morning, which will have an impact on how much/if any rain we get.

Above is a comparison of five different models on what they think the radar will look like at 7am on Sunday. Some think the low-pressure system ends up closer to us, increasing our rain chances. Some think it is closer to the coast, decreasing our rain chances. Another question that arises is how far west does it go? All models agree it’ll eventually turn north, but how far west it gets before that turn will also play a huge role.

Regardless, if it does rain, it won’t be much. A few storms could mix in Sunday, but there aren’t any severe concerns.

We’ll clear out for Memorial Day and temps will return to near average. Enjoy the low 80’s, because after Monday temps will increase to the mid to upper 80’s for the rest of the week. Dewpoints will also increase into the mid 60’s.

Along with the increase in humidity, Wattery chances will also increase as we head into June.
