Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 11:38AM
We're a couple of days away from drying out for a while so hang in there! More sunshine leads to a warmer, muggy afternoon inducing scattered showers and thundershowers. Friday has more of the same, perhaps a little better coverage of PM showers as a cold front approaches from the west. "Transition Day" is Saturday as the front scoots through with only a couple of showers in play through early afternoon. Overall the weekend looks terrific!

The remnants of Bertha are well to our north leaving us in a warmer, yet muggy airmass. As the atmosphere destabilizes this afternoon scattered showers and thundershowers develop as a result. Friday is similar, but afternoon convection is tied more directly to a cold front pressing into the TN/OH Valley's so it will be a tick better.
The front moves through Saturday with little fanfare in terms of showers. If we ended up completely dry I wouldn't be surprised. My grass is going to seed and I'm expecting to be able to mow before the day is over.
Cool Canadian based high pressure moves in behind the front Sunday through Tuesday. Temperatures on the top and bottom are pleasantly cool to start June. Warmer air returns Wednesday and perhaps some late-day or nighttime thundershowers but I did not include that mention in this forecast cycle.
