Forecast for Sunday, May 26, 2013

Blustery conditions will continue tonight and on Sunday as high pressure moves in and pushes up against a slowly departing low in New England. This will tighten the pressure gradient. Wind gusts between 25 and 35 MPH can be anticipated. There should be a gradual decrease in the cloudiness overnight as the area of high pressure begins to have an influence on our weather. Some clouds may return on Sunday with daytime heating, only to dissipate by Sunday Evening. Monday looks like a gorgeous day for Memorial Day with plenty of sunshine and comfortable temperatures.

A warm front will move through Tuesday Night into Wednesday. It may not be until late on Wednesday when the warm front pushes well north of our region. A few showers and thunderstorms may develop as the front lifts through.

A Bermuda High takes hold for the remainder of the extended forecast. This should result in hazy, hot, and humid conditions. This should be a partly to mostly sunny period for the most part. The model guidance may be suffering from some convective feedback issues at the end of the week and I don’t think widespread thunderstorm coverage will take place unless a backdoor cold front attempts to move through. However, an isolated thunderstorm is possible each day as it turns soupy. As we get closer to each day, there will be a better feel for any localized triggering mechanism.
