This weekend is off to a chilly and damp start. It was so cool today, that we set a record for the coldest high, it only reached 54 today. That is almost 20 degrees below the average high for an early May day.
Now for the rain…there is more light rain expected tonight mainly east of I-65. Overnight the rain will end and the sky will clear somewhat. Tomorrow should start on a dry note, but more rain will move in during the afternoon, especially east of I-65. It will be a littel breezy too. Here is the latest depiction from Futurecast.
Both Saturday and Sunday morning lows will be in the mid 40s and afternoon highs will be near 70. But Sunday is the best day of the weekend by far with sunshine making a big return. The drier pattern continues through Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures will be on the rise.
It’s that time of year there are a lot of fun things going on…many outside. Here are a few.
