Pattern Reversal

Our weather pattern is in the process of reversing. After a cool first half of May, we’re flipping the script to a summerlike regime as we head into the weekend. Today, there will be a lot of clouds and isolated afternoon showers and perhaps a thundershower. After today, expect more sunshine and a steady warming trend. Maximum temperatures will be getting high into the 80s by the weekend. Rain chances will be virtually nil after today.

Forecast Discussion

There will be considerable cloudiness today with isolated afternoon showers and perhaps a thundershower. Temperatures today will get held down a bit by opaque cloud cover.

For the remainder of the forecast, we have an expansive and impressive ridge of high pressure that will be developing over the eastern part of the United States.

This high will become vertically-stacked throughout the atmosphere, with significant ‘lock-and-hold’ ability that will extend through the weekend and into the early part of next week.

Sinking air underneath and in the vicinity of this impressive blocking feature will promote full sunshine and steady warming through the period. Highs that were once 10-20 degrees below normal just a week ago will turn to nearly 10-degrees above normal by this weekend.

The forecast looks dry after today.
