Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, May 28, 2017 at 6:56AM

Scattered PM Thunder

Storms last night performed about as expected. They turned the atmosphere upside down; so we should be safe from storms until daytime heating rights the atmospheric ship. Then afternoon and evening showers and storms will be possible again, probably NOT as prolific as last night's. Warm weather continues Memorial Day, but only isolated (mostly) afternoon thundershowers are expected. The coming week will be drier overall until late-week.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure extending from the Atlantic into the Gulf of Mexico is resisting fronts from the north and west. A front stretches from the Ohio Valley to Texas. It slowly moves southeast reaching us Monday evening. A second front takes a similar path reach us Wednesday. It will stall to our south Thursday before returning north late in the week.

Storms last night stabilized the atmosphere this morning. Daytime heating will be required to produce lift needed for thundershowers again; so, I think we'll be dry until afternoon. Then, scattered or widely scattered thundershowers are expected.

With the fronts in our vicinity, isolated mostly afternoon thundershowers are expected Memorial Day through Wednesday. Then with the fronts to our south Thursday has the least thundershower coverage (maybe none?) of the week.

As the front returns north, warm, moist air accompanies it. The result will be a gradual increase in PM thundershowers. We called coverage "isolated" Friday and "widely scattered" Saturday.

Temperatures... Warm today. Less warm in the middle of the week. Warmer late week.
