Pleasant Evening

If it's going to be like this all summer our job just got easier. The main takeaway is "quite warm and mostly dry". However, like any good forecast there are caveats :-). The first being a "not as warm" day tomorrow in a moist southeast flow and an afternoon shower is not out of the question. The second being the potential for Thursday to have more showers than advertised. Right now we'll hold it to isolated coverage, and for that matter a rogue afternoon thundershower is fair game almost any day. Otherwise it's borderline hot this early in the season heading into Memorial Day weekend.

Forecast Discussion

Expect a pleasant evening with only a few clouds.
High pressure along the Mid-Atlantic coast induces a moist southeast breeze Wednesday. We'll have plenty of clouds, cooler temperatures, and perhaps a light afternoon or evening shower.

The gloves come off after that as a heat ridge builds across the Southeast. Thursday through the holiday weekend are quite warm and dry. Peak daytime heating could yield a rogue thundershower about any day, but we're not gonna fret over it or let that guide outdoor plans. A cooling shower would be welcomed if it materializes.
