Weekend Outlook : Swing Back to Spring

After a week that featured some heat and humidity, a burst of rain on Thursday, and a fantastic Friday… the weekend looks like a swing back to Spring.  The average high for this time of year is in the upper 70s.  This weekend, we’ll see slightly cooler temperatures than the average… with highs expected in the low 70s.  This would be more typical of mid-May rather than mid-June.  So for anyone looking for summer weather to hit the pool… you’re going to be disappointed this weekend.  But if you’re looking for some nice, comfortable, spring-like weather… you’re going to love what’s in store for this weekend.

Both Saturday and Sunday should see mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 70s.  Saturday night looks quite chilly to be honest, with overnight lows possibly tumbling into the mid 40s (also more typical of mid May).  So we should be able to toss open those windows at night, and let some cool, fresh air into the room.

Looking ahead to next week, initially we were thinking that an upper level low pressure would spin moisture into the region for much of the work week.  It was appearing that we’d have a good shot at getting several days of scattered showers and give us some much needed rainfall.  However, as upper level low pressures tend to be… this one was very difficult to forecast the position and timing of.  It now appears the upper level low will stall out over the deep south, rather than the mid-Atlantic.  The difference will be dramatic in terms of the forecast.  Instead of several days of unsettled weather, with a chance of considerable rainfall… it now looks like we’ll be mostly sunny and dry through most of the work week.  Considering the fact that we need the rainfall… this isn’t such a great thing.  But if you have outdoor plans, at least that’s a positive.

We hope everyone has a great weekend, and enjoy the spring time weather.
