Drier and Hotter Today


Today, high pressure is firmly in control. The odd chance of an afternoon shower just due to the heat of the day is possible but chances remain very low. Highs are expected to be back in the upper 70s pushing 80 for those in the western half of the area.

Thursday we fully dry out and see widespread sunshine make a return to the region. Highs will be in the 80s for nearly everyone. This will kick off a very nice, but hot end to our week.

Friday we just repeat exactly what we saw the day before. Highs in the low 80s for most, plenty of sunshine, and in this case a great start to the weekend.

Saturday, high pressure is still bringing stunning weather to our area. Highs remain in the 80s and skies remain dry throughout the day. 

Sunday will be the last day high pressure is fully in control. Plenty of nice weather is still expected during the day with plenty of sunshine and highs returning to the 80s. Eventually, though clouds will build their way back in through the afternoon and evening and the shot at a few showers returns overnight.

Monday, an upper level disturbance passing to our north should be enough to spark up some rain through the day. Showers will have to compete with our high from the weekend but it does look likely that rain will make a return for most. Highs at least remain into the low 80s for most.

In the extended forecast, hot but unsettled weather sticks around. After Monday, we see a shift in the jet stream which will line us up to see a few rounds of rain as quick moving disturbances roll over us into the end of May.
