I think many would agree we had great weather for this Memorial Day Weekend, now we have to think about getting back to work and school on Tuesday. This week's weather can be summed up in one word: Summer. Very much summer-like heat and humidity are here all week, accompanied by rain chances too. On Tuesday you should wake up to a mild morning in the 60s so you might be able to get by without the jacket heading into work. You'll be thankful you didn't need the coat, because by the afternoon temperatures should rise into the mid-upper 80s in most spots along with much higher humidity. A slight chance of a widely isolated shower or possible thunderstorm is most likely north and west of the immediate metro. Likelier chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms come on Wednesday and Thursday as a cold front nears as it fades and washes out over the Mid-Atlantic. A slight chance for scattered storms comes on Friday with the lingering effects of what was once a cold front combined with the heat and high humidity. The next likeliest rain days after Wednesday and Thursday comes by next weekend as another cold front nears the region but this time is forecast to pass through the region. The cold frontal timing is in question, it could be as early as Saturday night or as late as next Monday. We'll keep a persistence forecast going through Sunday with the heat/humidity/and storm chances until more consistency shows in forecasts bringing the front through sooner. No matter when that second cold front comes, forecasts are already in agreement that another round of crisp, cool air and much lower humidity replaces the hot and humid conditions we face this week.
I hope you had a great and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
