Many say the unofficial start of summer is Memorial weekend and that just might hold true this year. We’ve actually already seen summer-style heat for most of the month of May so we are not strangers to the weather that’s in store for us in the upcoming days. We just got a nice, rainy and cooler break before the heat cranks back up. We will see one last night/early morning with a little crisp feel to the air with temperatures in the upper 50s/low 60s to start Friday. After that heat and humidity rule the forecast for the foreseeable future.

Morning lows warm the upper 60s and 70s with afternoon highs in the low-to-mid 90s all weekend long and pretty much all next week too. If we are going to see any rain over the coming days, the best chances will be next Thursday and Friday as a cold front potentially moves toward the area. A few isolated showers or storms could be possible with the front, but there’s a good chance the front either doesn’t move into the area or doesn’t bring us any rainfall. That’s one possible outcome and the other might be a string of triple digit days. It’s too early to tell which might win out but it’s something we are monitoring over the next few days.

Tropics Look Quiet... for now: We have just a few days left in the month of May and it looks like we will hold off on the possibility of any tropical development in that timeframe. Hurricane season officially starts on June 1st but the last seven years has brought us early season storms that developed in May. If we can hold off, which looks likely, we will break that streak this year. That said, 2022 is expected to be an active hurricane year.
