Pattern Reversal

Our weather pattern is in the process of reversing. After a cool first half of May, we’re flipping the script to a summer-like regime as we head into the weekend. Tonight, there will be lingering clouds and perhaps a stray shower. After today, expect more sunshine and a steady warming trend. Highs will be getting close to 90 by late in the weekend. Rain chances will be virtually nil after today.

Forecast Discussion

We'll keep clouds around tonight with a slight chance for a stray shower.

For the remainder of the forecast, we have an expansive and impressive ridge of high pressure that will be developing over the eastern part of the United States.

This high will become vertically-stacked throughout the atmosphere, with significant ‘lock-and-hold’ ability that will extend through the weekend and into the early part of next week.

Sinking air underneath and in the vicinity of this impressive blocking feature will promote full sunshine and steady warming through the period. Highs that were once 10-20 degrees below normal just a week ago will turn to nearly 10-degrees above normal by this weekend.

The forecast looks dry after today.
