May 24: Wet Wednesday


Rain moved in from the west overnight, and we can expect widespread showers and thunderstorms through early afternoon.  After that, scattered showers and storms will still be possible, but in more of a hit-or-miss pattern.  The HRRR model’s radar simulation gives you a good sense of the overall pattern through early evening:

Highs will only reach the mid to upper 60s today, thanks to the clouds and rainfall:

A few showers will linger tonight into early Thursday, mainly east of I-65:

High temperatures Thursday will reach the low to mid 70s:

We’ll clear out for the end of the work week, making it up to the mid 80s Friday.  Spotty storms re-enter the forecast on Saturday, with highs in the mid 80s again — I’m not entirely convinced of our Saturday rain chances though, which is why I’m leaving it as a less than 50-50 chance.  Have an indoor backup plan ready-to-go in case you need it.  The best chance of rain for the holiday weekend moves in on Sunday:

Memorial Day itself looks mostly dry, with highs in the low 80s.

I’m off the rest of this week, and through early next week — Daphne and Dan will have you covered weather-wise, and the nerd-links will be back on Wednesday!
