We’ve reached what looks to be not only the best weather day of the week, but most likely the best day of the month as sunshine, light winds, and comfortable, balmy weather is ahead of us. High pressure is settling in from the north, providing us with bright, tranquil conditions for our Wednesday. High temperatures will be in the mid and upper 70s with sunny skies and just a hint of a north breeze.
A warm front will move into the region tonight, likely triggering a few late night showers and thunderstorms, but severe weather isn’t likely in this situation. Those showers will hang around into the mid morning hours of Thursday before they give way to warm, mid May sunshine. Temperatures tomorrow will be the warmest of the week with lower 80s in most spots by the afternoon hours. A few more thunderstorms may develop later in the evening, a few of which may become strong south of Interstate 90 where large hail and strong winds will be possible.
Showers and thunderstorms will continue off and on through Friday with a cool east breeze holding our temperatures back a bit with mid 60s expected in the area. A few stronger storms may again develop by Friday evening with some heavy downpours of rain possible later in the night.
The weekend is looking cooler and cloudier for us as a large storm system from the southwest slides into the region, keeping showers and thunderstorms in our weather picture to go with brisk east winds. High temperatures may struggle to reach the 60s Saturday with lower 60s and gustier winds expected on Sunday.
