More Sun For Memorial Day

After a rather cloudy Sunday with spotty showers, we expect more sun and noticeably warmer temperatures for Memorial Day. An isolated afternoon shower or thundershower will be around, although most places stay rain-free for outside activities. The rest of the week looks rather typical of early June: Expect ample sunshine, warm temperatures, and opportunities for afternoon thundershowers during the period.

Forecast Discussion

Bonnie brought clouds and spotty showers to the area on Sunday, but today, the depression will have less impact on local area weather as it meanders through the South Carolina Grand Strand. Here in western North Carolina, expect more sunshine, warmer temperatures and only isolated PM showers and thundershowers.

The remainder of the shortened workweek features a good deal of sunshine but with a daily development of hit-or-miss afternoon showers and thundershowers. Temperatures will run a bit warmer than normal for early June.

A cold front will approach the area by late in the week, promoting a bit better coverage of showers and thunderstorms. The front is expected to slip east of the area over the weekend, perhaps putting us in a drier air mass toward next Sunday. We'll have to see where the front ultimately comes to rest.
