Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at 6:09PM

Warmer Ahead; Evening Clouds, Maybe A Shower

The big story in our forecast is a resilient, warm, dry ridge building across the Southeastern U.S. Warm and dry will be the weather theme after Wednesday. But we are still in the transformation period this evening with lots of clouds and isolated showers, perhaps even a rumble of thunder.

Forecast Discussion

Our weather is about to become impressively simple... Beginning Wednesday, a large upper level ridge builds over the Southeastern U.S., ushering in warmer and drier conditions. We'll be in the middle of that ridge; the battleground becomes the periphery: Maine to the Northern Lakes to Texas and the Western Gulf of Mexico.

Today's temperatures very well may be the coolest we'll see until September or October. However, we won't really "feel the heat" until next week when most valleys break into the 80s for high temperatures. Let summer begin in the Southeast!

This evening and tomorrow are part of the transition into the warmer and drier pattern. A front just to our west and south is fading off the map. We keep lots of clouds tonight with isolated rain showers, perhaps a stray thundershower. Wednesday has a barely worth mentioning chance of an isolated shower. The next ever-so-slight chance of an afternoon thundershower will be next Monday, but that chance is so small, I did not include that mention in the forecast box. We'll be begging for rain before this long warm, dry spell is over.
