Widely Scattered Thundershowers

Storms Saturday night produced a more stable atmosphere Sunday. Then persistent clouds Sunday kept temperatures down preventing a repeat of widespread storms late Sunday. However, we will see widely scattered showers and thundershowers develop late Sunday continuing into Sunday night. Memorial Day brings partly to mostly cloudy skies with only isolated showers and thundershowers. Temperatures remain pleasant.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure extending from the Atlantic into the Gulf of Mexico is resisting fronts from the north and west. A front stretches from the Ohio Valley to Texas. It slowly moves southeast reaching us Monday evening. A second front takes a similar path reach us Wednesday. It will stall to our south Thursday before returning north late in the week.

Storms Saturday night stabilized the atmosphere for Sunday. Persistent clouds Sunday reduced daytime heating and in turn prevent a significant refiring of storms. However, widely scattered showers and thundershowers will develop late Sunday and Sunday night.

With the fronts in our vicinity, isolated mostly afternoon thundershowers are expected Memorial Day through Wednesday. Then with the fronts to our south Thursday has the least thundershower coverage (maybe none?) of the week.

As the front returns north, warm, moist air accompanies it. The result will be a gradual increase in PM thundershowers. We called coverage "isolated" Friday and "widely scattered" Saturday.

Temperatures... Warm today. Less warm in the middle of the week. Warmer late week.
