WARM AND HUMID WEATHER WILL CONTINUE FOR SEVERAL DAYS… HIT OR MISS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS SHOULDN’T TOTALLY RUIN YOUR OUTDOOR PLANS THIS HOLIDAY WEEKEND

The weather map features a departing high pressure system out in the Atlantic, a very slow moving frontal system approaching VA from the NW and a low pressure system swirling near TN. The S-SW flow around the high pressure system in conjunction with the low well to our SW will bring up higher humidity into our part of the nation. This combined with ample sunshine and some slight instability from very weak shortwaves, should produce hit or miss showers and thunderstorms over the next few days. Here’s the way forecasters break the it down… Today (Sunday), chances of rain will be very low, especially east of I-95. But, when you have all this humidity around, you can never rule out a pop-up shower or storm from occurring. On Monday, the chances of rain go up a bit, but forecasters are not predicting a wash-out for anyone. Since the front will be just to our north for a good part of the upcoming week, precipitation chances will remain with us for much of the week. Pinpointing what time period that will have the highest precipitation chances is nearly impossible at this point given the uncertainties of the current weather pattern. I will have an update on Memorial Day.
