Forecast: A Mostly Dry Work Week Ahead

It certainly wasn't a great weekend of weather across the region. That cool and cloudy damp day on Saturday followed by a cloudy and muggy day yesterday left us wanting sunshine.

Today we find high pressure building into the region along with bluer skies and warm temperatures. You'll notice that the air is drier, as the humidity levels have dropped quite a bit since last night.

Temperatures this time of the year are generally in the mid-to-upper 60s but will be in the mid-to-upper 70s this afternoon.

There is another weak weather system that's going to pass the area tomorrow and bring back the clouds and a couple of shower possibilities, especially in the afternoon. Because we'll have the cloudiness, it will be cooler but it's not going to be a cool day.

Wednesday is looking like a pretty nice day, although some cloudiness will build in the afternoon. Thursday and Friday are also looking like nice days this week, with plenty of sunshine and temperatures above average.

The month of May so far has actually been quite a bit warmer than average — almost as warm this month as April was cold. which of course balances things out.

The forecast for Memorial Day weekend is still in flux. There is the possibility of some wet weather during the weekend but I'm not ready to commit to the exact timing of that just yet.
