Drying Out a Bit, Showers Possible Saturday

Looking like a pretty decent weekend ahead, especially when compared to our last few. We have been caught in a pesky trough pattern that has perpetually kept the risk of clouds, rain and cooler temps across the region. While this upper air pattern and its associated weather looks to continue though May, we can manage some nice days in between weather systems.  Friday will kick off a multi day stretch of decent weather that will carry us into next week. Only hiccup may be the potential for clouds and a few showers on Saturday as another area of low pressure slides to our south. This won’t be a wash out by any means, but all data points to the potential for some scattered showers to develop. In terms of overall weather, Friday and Sunday look to take the prize for the better days. A look at the below graphic from the NAM model showing total precipitation between Friday and Sunday afternoon really highlights are position between an incoming low pressure from the Ohio valley and a pesky offshore low that has been responsible for a chilly and rainy weather this week.

Not much wiggle room on that Saturday storm as the difference between a few scattered showers and a bit more of a light rain is a very small margin, but as of now it appears we may fall on the drier side of things but mostly cloudy skies will be unavoidable. As far as temps they will remain near to slight below average through the period with highs in the 70’s and lows in the 50’s. Warmer temps look to reveal themselves by the first half of next week when we might touch the upper 70’s to even low 80’s. Hope everyone has a great end to their week and an even better weekend!
