May 23: Rainy Weather Ahead, Daily Links


This morning’s showers won’t last all day — rain chances will diminish by midday, as shown by the HRRR model’s radar simulation:

Still some isolated showers possible at any point during the day, but most of the afternoon is looking dry and warm, with highs in the upper 70s to near 80°:

Another good chance of rain moves in from the west late tonight and will stick around through midday Wednesday — this is the RPM model’s version of that:

Scattered showers are still likely Wednesday afternoon, continuing into Wednesday night and even early Thursday:

Cool temperatures courtesy of the clouds and showers tomorrow — highs will only top out around 70°:

Friday will be dry and warm, then the Memorial Day weekend is looking warm but unsettled, with scattered storms possible Saturday and Sunday:

The more-reliable forecast data is pointing toward a better chance of rain late Friday night and again Saturday night, with drier conditions during the daylight hours — take that with HUGE grain of salt though, because we’re still several days away from the weekend.  We’ll keep you updated throughout the week, so you can make adjustments if necessary.



Last batch of nerd-links for a while…I’ve got a meeting tomorrow morning right after the morning newscast (a forecast-related blog post will still be published).  Then I’m off for the Memorial Day weekend.
