Dodging Memorial Day Showers

A backdoor front reaches us late today. That combined with a humid airmass in place will make Memorial Day cloudy with morning fog and afternoon showers/thundershowers. Cooler air gradually overtakes the region Tuesday and Wednesday. Clouds and fog linger into Tuesday with a few showers still around. Then a low pressure moves up the Southeast Coast adding rain for us Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night.

Forecast Discussion

A backdoor front arrives from the east this evening. Memorial Day has fog with mostly afternoon showers and thundershowers. Temperatures are a bit cooler than Sunday.

Tuesday is another step cooler with fog, clouds, and a few, mostly afternoon showers.

Low pressure develops today in Florida. It moves north, up the Southeast Coast and into the Carolinas Wednesday. Wednesday has clouds, fog, and showers/thundershowers especially in the afternoon and overnight.

Thursday has warmer temperatures with scattered showers and thundershowers, again mostly in the afternoon.

I'm taking a chance on a drier Friday with afternoon shower/thundershower coverage lower than the surrounding days.

A front finally reaches us from the west Saturday evening. Afternoon and early evening showers and thundershowers are likely.

This forecast is betting on the front sweeping south into Florida by Sunday afternoon producing a cooler but dry day here.
