DAYS 1-5 (MAY 25-29)
Memorial Day Weekend will feature generally nice weather, with the one unsettled weather interruption tucked into an 8-hour period Saturday night to early Sunday morning, when high pressure that brings nice weather during Saturday’s daytime gives way to a warm front crossing the region. Once this front clears the area early Sunday the humidity will go up and it will be the warmest day of the 3, and we will have to watch for a pop up shower or thunderstorm in isolated locations later in the day. A cold front will fairly quietly cross the region Sunday night and then high pressure will move in for Memorial Day with spectacular weather and no issues for outdoor observances. After that, we get into an unsettled period of weather as a frontal boundary will be in the vicinity Tuesday and Wednesday. It looks like we’ll be on the cooler side of the boundary Tuesday and the warmer side Wednesday, with a few episodes of showers and possible thunderstorms during those days, which will will have to fine-tune the timing of as it gets closer.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 30-JUNE 3)
A front should still be on the vicinity, leaning toward SNE on the warmer side with a risk of showers/thunderstorms during May 30, then the front pushing through with drier weather for May 31. June 1-2 weekend starts dry and turns humid and may end with a risk of showers/thunderstorms before fair weather returns to end the period. Temperatures near to above normal overall for the period.
DAYS 11-15 (JUNE 4-8)
A trough crossing eastern Canada may send a couple disturbances and shower/t-storm chances into SNE around June 5 and 7 (timing uncertain). temperatures overall should be fairly close to seasonal averages.
