Mostly sunny skies will sit overhead throughout the day and we cannot find anything wrong with this picture as drier air infiltrates the region from north, making for a perfect start to the Memorial Day Weekend. Overnight into Saturday will continue to feature mostly clear skies with temps dipping back into the low 40’s – low 50’s depending upon elevation, possibly touching the upper 30’s across the highest ridgetops in the region.
Saturday and Sunday both offer up sunshine with Saturday featuring more sunshine than Sunday, mainly due to the influx of moisture back into the region late this weekend, continuing into early next week. Temps will gradually warm back up across the region, rising to the mid 60’s – upper 70’s tomorrow and then the upper 60’s – low 80’s Sunday. Overnight lows will dip into the low – upper 50’s both nights, with perhaps a bit more cloud cover late in the day Sunday, also overnight into Monday.
