Long Weekend Lowdown


By Marek Zebrowski
Staff meteoroligist

Spring showers and thunder are likely ahead of a vigorous cold front approaching our area from the west during Friday. A small cell of high pressure will then build for Saturday and early Sunday, bringing clearing skies and noticeably cooler temperatures. However, as the aforesaid cold front stalls, bisecting the Southeast, a new disturbance will form in deep South and proceed alongside, entering the Ohio Valley by late Sunday. As this low continues to move slowly towards the northeast and, eventually, offshore, the unsettled weather will return for Marathon Monday, with chilly rains and biting onshore winds. More cool weather will follow the passage of this weather lowlight as the long weekend ends.

Today: Mostly cloudy with a few sunny breaks possible. Warm and becoming windy, with fresh southwesterly breezes. Some downpours and strong thunderstorms will cross the area in the afternoon. High 70F (21C).

Tonight: Cloudy, with showers ending late. Winds turning to northwest. Low 48F (9C).

Saturday: Becoming partly to mostly sunny and pleasant. High 64F (18C).

Sunday outlook: Increasing high clouds; winds slowly turning onshore. Highs in low to mid 50s (1113C), lows in mid to upper 40s (69C).
