Few PM T-Showers Through Friday

Early summerlike conditions are here, as we expect intervals of clouds and sunshine along with very warm temperatures today and Friday. Along with the unseasonable warmth will be hit-or-miss afternoon and evening showers and thundershowers both days. Saturday features bright sunshine and warm temperatures. Sunday and Memorial Day look nice, but the risk for mostly PM showers and thundershowers will be back in the forecast.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure ridging in from the western Atlantic Ocean (a.k.a. The Bermuda High) will control our weather over the next few days. There’s adequate moisture in the lower layers of the atmosphere now to spark a few afternoon thundershowers around western North Carolina, and that’s what we expect to see over the next couple of afternoons.

Over the Memorial Day weekend, we’ll be watching a low-pressure system off the Southeast Coast of the United States to see if it acquires tropical characteristics in the days leading up to the official start of the Atlantic hurricane season (June 1).

The future movement of this low will determine our weather outcomes for the rest of the holiday weekend. If the low stays far enough to our east, the effects will be minimal, and we’ll have plenty of sunshine with just small PM shower or thundershower chances, starting again after a dry Saturday. A track farther inland could make things a bit wetter for Sunday and Memorial Day. We’re favoring the former, drier solution at the present time.
