Memorial Day Weekend could offer taste of summer

The rainy and dreary weather which has plagued the area quite frequently over the past few weeks will continue through the middle of this week, but

it appears that the forecast models are beginning to hint at the potential for a turnaround in temperatures and sensible weather by Memorial Day Weekend. A large trough diving towards the West Coast on some of the major forecast models would help force the development of a large ridge on the East Coast of the United States, ushering in a much warmer airmass — possibly the warmest we’ve seen so far this season. However, the intensity of the heat and the ability for it to reach our remains in question. Forecast models have been fluctuating with the northward reach of the “real” heat (temperatures over 90 F), so we’ll have to keep a close eye on it. That said, we’re definitely looking at the potential for some real summer-like days in the near future!

Along with the potential for heat, will come the potential for thunderstorms. Typically, along the periphery of these big heat-ridge set-ups, thunderstorm systems can form and track for relatively long distances. Often referred to in the meteorological community as the “ring of fire”, these complexes of storms can often provide a strong punch. However, the exact setup (positioning/strength of the ridge) will determine where the thunderstorms track. Some of the forecast models are hinting at impacts in our area — but we’ll watch it carefully!

All in all, the pattern looks to take a bit of a turn towards a more summery feel over the next week for sure. Stay here for all the details as we get closer.
