Happy Mother's Day to all mom's! I hope everyone has had a good weekend. It has been very wet with some locations receiving over 3 inches of rain the past 48 hours. Lucky for us, sunny skies are on the horizon. As you can see from the graphic below, we have had a slow moving front stationed over the southeast for most of the weekend. This will push eastward tonight allowing for a high pressure system (currently in Wisconsin) to fill its place. This means mr. sun will soon fill the skies the later half of Monday and through the first half of the day Wednesday.
Along with lots of rain, I am sure many of you have felt the cooler temperatures associated with the front. This NOAA map shows the temperature change over the past 24 hours. These cooler temperatures will stick around the next couple of days leaving high's in the upper 60's and low 70's and low's in the upper 40's. To get an idea of what the norm is for this time of the year, we will be around 70 degrees for the next 2 days and the average temperatures for the month of May are in the upper 70's. Enjoy these cooler temperatures as they last, though, because more rain and warm temperatures (in the 80's) will arrive toward the end of the week.
Below is a model run for cloud cover. Much of the cloud cover will move out overnight tonight allowing for a partly cloudy start to Monday. As we work through the day, drier air will in forcing clouds to move out and leaving sunny skies by Monday afternoon. You can expect sunny skies through the first half of Wednesday before the chance of showers returns. Enjoy some much needed sun and the cooler temperatures!
