Good Saturday, everyone. We have made it to Mother’s Day Weekend, but the overall setup isn’t looking to be the best in the world. Rounds of showers and cool temps are dominating the setup for the next few days.
Temps today can reach the upper 60s to around 70 in a few spots as showers dot the skyline. The action is likely to be more widespread early on across the southeast with a drying sky north and west. Showers will then increase from southwest to northeast by the evening. Here are your tracking toys for the day:
Additional rain rolls across central and, especially, eastern Kentucky for Mother’s Day. Southeastern parts of the state may get enough rain to cause local high water issues.
All of this unsettled weather is coming from a highly anomalous system moving through the eastern half of the country. This is something you see more in the winter months:
That cooler than normal air lasts into the middle of next week, which will also be our next threat for a shower or thunderstorm.
Temps rebound to near normal later in the week into next weekend, but the cool air may not be too far away to our north. That could turn us wet again:
That would certainly keep temps from warming up for very long. As a matter of fact, the CFS has the next month skewing colder than normal for much of the country:
Make it a wonderful Saturday and take care.
