Perfect Memorial Day Weekend

We wake up to chilly sunrise temperatures, but fans of warmer weather are in luck - this Memorial Day weekend is as good as you’ll ever see weather-wise. We’ll see a steady increase in temperatures all the while managing to hold off those pesky afternoon thundershowers until after the holiday. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

A broad ridge of high pressure relocates off the Southeast Coast today and will become a fixture over the western Atlantic through next week. This ridge will prevent any fronts from reaching us for as far as the eye can see; however, warmer and increasingly humid air will serve as the mechanism for afternoon showers and thundershowers next week underneath the western edge of the high pressure ridge, aka “the ring of fire.”

After a chilly morning, temperatures begin their journey upward today and won’t look back. Expect plenty of sunshine and dry conditions through Memorial Day. In summary, you'll never have nicer weather for Memorial Day in your lifetime. Hopefully you can get outdoors take full advantage it!

Tuesday through Friday, a more summer-like pattern takes over with an increasing threat of afternoon pop-up thundershowers. We'll have isolated to widely-scattered coverage of PM showers/thundershowers Tuesday and Wednesday, then we'll call it "scattered" Thursday and Friday.
