A chilly start to Memorial Day weekend

Good Friday and welcome to the start of the Memorial Day weekend. This is often called the unofficial start of summer, but someone forgot to tell that to Mother Nature. A chilly blast of air is blowing in today and will hang around.

Temps today will start in the low 40s and end in the 60s. Skies will be mostly sunny, but a gusty wind will have a little bite to it for this last day of school in Fayette County.

The mercury tonight will take a little dive and could bottom out in the mid and upper 30s by Saturday morning. Wow. Could some of the sheltered valleys see some patchy frost? On Memorial Day Weekend? It’s a possibility, especially in the east.

Saturday looks pretty good, with some late-day clouds rolling in as highs reach the upper 50s to around 60. There is a small threat of a shower late in the day, but most of that threat will hold off into Sunday. You can see that showing up on the NAM:


Those spotty showers and storms will be on the nose of much warmer air pushing in for later Sunday and Memorial Day. Highs by then will hit the 70s.

The middle and end of next week looks a bit toasty:


That’s a very warm and humid setup taking shape for the end of May and early June.

Have a great day and take care.
