Weather: May-Be Rain

May-Be Rain

Greg Lawson and Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologists

Expect today to be a few degrees warmer than yesterday as a slow high pressure center begins to pass south of us, shifting the winds from northerly to north-westerly. This will also bring us clear skies for at least the next couple of days. As it passes, expect a warming with Wednesday with temperatures reaching the low seventies. Sometime during Thursday we should see an increase in cloudiness and there is even a slight chance of an early evening shower due to a small mid-level disturbance sneaking southward. Friday's outlook is even worse as a healthy low arrives from the south bringing with it plenty of moisture from the Gulf - expect rain.

Today: Early morning clouds giving way to sunny skies. Moderate winds (15 mph) from the northwest. High 58F (14C).

Tonight: Continued clear skies. Further shift to westerly winds. Low 44F (7C).

Wednesday: Beautiful! Clear sunny skies. High 72F (22C). Low 47F (8C).

Thursday: Clouding up later in the day. Marginal chance of an isolated sprinkle. Highs around 70F (21C)
