Forecast Discussion

Skies will be partly sunny today, and with unseasonably cold temperatures aloft, there will be just enough instability to generate widely scattered showers this afternoon.

The weekend looks pleasant with a slow and steady warming trend. Sunshine prevails Saturday, but with a few extra clouds on Sunday. Early next week will continue to be dry, but with mixed skies.

A frontal zone sagging southward into the Mid-Atlantic will bring us a risk for showers moving into later Tuesday and midweek. An isolated PM shower continues into Thursday as a more normal May weather regime takes hold.

Temperatures will also be very close to normal for a change.
