From mucky to marvelous describes this weekend’s weather! Whatever your plans, other than a Saturday fly in the ointment, we are in good shape and that same Saturday system has a nice pay off!
Here are the surface features for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You can see the cold front to our north on Friday, moving through on Saturday and actually offshore Sunday:
Both the American Model and the European Model bring the rain in on Saturday and out by Sunday. Here’s the American Model:
The European is on the same track:
So how much rain? Generally less than an inch and right now the timing favors a late Saturday passage clearing by Sunday morning, so with any luck we won’t be hampered by the rain much at all. Just be aware that Saturday evening plans might be a bit damp.
Don’t forget that behind that front WINDS will shift! A quick northeast and then easterly flow comes our way Sunday and Monday. Dew points will drop from the muggy 70s on Friday and Saturday to the more comfy 60s Sunday and Monday! Here is a nice graphic from the National Weather Service painting memorable Memorial Day weekend weather -- the kind we like to remember:
Have a nice weekend and my personal thanks to all those who have served and died protecting our country and our freedom.
