Sunny Breaks Warm Up Temps, But Rain Will Return

Posted May 24, 2017

What looked like a good chance for showers tomorrow morning, now appears to be only a slim chance for a stray shower or two...keeping most of tomorrow dry too.

Thursday will be remain dry ahead of more rain chances moving in to start the holiday weekend.

Tuesday - A 40 percent chance of showers.

The rain is back in the metro-east as Tuesday brings mostly cloudy skies, a high near 73 degrees and a 50 percent chance of rain this afternoon.

The forecast may look a bit unnerving with rain chances almost every day, but no wash-outs or all day long rains are expected.

Memorial Day looks partly sunny and warm with temperatures near 80 and a chance for a few showers & storms.

A period of rain is likely later Thursday into Friday. There is a much better chance of rain on Thursday, and some of the showers will be heavy Thursday PM into Friday AM.

Friday brings 60 percent chances of showers, then a 30 percent of showers followed by mostly cloudy at night. Winds N 5-10 miles per hour. High 79F. Winds W at 5 to 10 miles per hour.

Saturday: Mostly sunny; high of 78. By afternoon, the sun may come out with highs rising into the 70s yet again. Sunday will be a dry day with highs in the middle 70s under partly cloudy skies.

Meteorologists say daytime highs should be held to the upper 60s and low 70s throughout the week, with some warming (and perhaps more rain) expected for Memorial Day weekend.

Wednesday night: Mostly cloudy, low around 48.

Damaging winds are possible in any storms that develop, though the severe weather threat is generally on the low side. The rain risk will be 30 percent. The high will be 72. Expect wall-to-wall sunshine across the area today, but cool north breezes keep highs in the 60s this afternoon.
