Unsettled Evening

Hang in there, we're almost done. The light at the end of the long wet tunnel emerges Friday and you don't want to be in the office at 4pm. Until then we must deal with another round of showers and storms through the evening, some potentially severe. Showers and storms diminish tonight. Improvements commence Thursday, generally isolated daytime showers. The waters part Friday and we remain in good shape until Sunday when scattered showers or thundershowers return.

Forecast Discussion

An area of low pressure pushes a warm front north of the region into Virginia, followed by a cold frontal passage tonight. Abundant gulf moisture remains in place sparking widespread showers and thunderstorms into the evening. A strong storm or two is possible with small hail and gusty winds, especially in the foothills.

The action slows down tonight behind the cold front. However, we're not completely done. A broad upper level low churning in the Ohio Valley keeps the threat of a few daytime showers Thursday. There will be more misses than hits.

High pressure builds northward from the Gulf Friday and Saturday bringing a fast return of warmth and sunshine. That said, an isolated afternoon thundershower is possible Saturday the high shifts into the western Atlantic.

Another front approaches late Sunday. There will be plenty of dry hours packed into the day, but scattered showers and thundershowers return for the afternoon and evening hours. Memorial Day is quite nice though a lingering PM thundershower is not off the table. At this point it's not worth altering any outside plans. Enjoy!
