Forecast Last Updated at Friday, May 29, 2020 at 6:59AM

Scattered PM Thunder

A game-changing front moves through this evening. We have early fog, a few dry hours, then scattered afternoon and evening thundershowers. A disturbance along the front in SC keeps isolated showers with us Saturday, but most of the day will be dry. Sunday will be dry and refreshingly cooler. There's a clamor for drier weather; you get it--Sunday through at least Tuesday.

Forecast Discussion

I've been longing for a simpler forecast. Finally today...

A front moves through from the northwest this evening. After early fog, expect scattered afternoon and evening thundershowers. The front will be just to our east with a disturbance moving along it in South Carolina. As a result we must keep the mention of an isolated daytime shower in the Saturday forecast.

Beginning Sunday, cool high pressure slides from the Great Lakes into the Atlantic by Tuesday. Temperatures Sunday and Monday will be cooler, then bounce back Tuesday. Dry weather rules throughout.

Dry weather holds into Wednesday for most, but I cannot completely rule out a stray afternoon thundershower. Temperatures will be warmer. Thundershower coverage ticks up slightly Thursday.

As a curiosity, a third named tropical system will be possible next weekend. This time in the Western Gulf.
