We’ve strung together a pretty nice stretch of weather this week – particularly when compared to so many other days so far this spring. While today was a bit cool with an onshore wind, the chilly air was offset by the strong May sunshine.
Looking ahead to the next few days…expect to shift back and forth between some cloudy and damp weather and some sunshine and mild conditions.
Low pressure will pass to our north on Friday, dragging a couple of frontal zones across the region…the first being a warm front during Friday, the second being a cold front Friday night. These two frontal zones will result in an abundance of cloud cover on Friday and likely some intermittent wet weather – though nothing too terrible in terms of steady or heavy rain. In fact, much of the day should end up overcast but rain-free.
Temperatures will be in the 50s with a freshening southerly breeze.
Behind Friday night’s cold front, things will dry out and we should squeeze in a pretty nice day on Saturday. Skies will average out partly to mostly sunny and temperatures should climb into the 60s with a nice offshore breeze.
Unfortunately, the weather is likely to go downhill from there, with a series of low pressure centers passing near the region Sunday into Monday. It looks as though both days will feature wet weather and chilly temperatures, with Monday looking particularly unsettled as strengthening low pressure passes near the area and brings us a gusty east wind and potentially some heavy rain (more on that as we get closer).
