Forecast Last Updated at Monday, May 23, 2016 at 7:06PM

Still Rather Cool, But Not For Long

Skies turn mostly clear tonight with another seasonally cool start Tuesday. That doesn't last long, as we are on the launching pad awaiting a much warmer liftoff tomorrow afternoon. The rest of the week and into the all-important Memorial Day weekend features some early-summer type warmth. Mostly dry weather can be expected, except for isolated late-day thundershowers late in the week.

RelayWithRay.Com continues along the Virginia portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway. You can follow Ray’s daily blog posts at relaywithray.com/blog/.

Forecast Discussion

An upper low responsible for the recent cool and active weather gets kicked to the northeast on Tuesday. This will allow high pressure to get a stronghold on our weather, while also introducing a much warmer air mass. Skies will be generally clear.

Wednesday and Thursday will be much the same, with above-normal temperatures as we make the more semi-permanent switch over to A/C.

As the high pressure cell moves offshore and takes anchor near Bermuda, it will gradually pump in more moisture. A resulting increase in instability will fuel a daily risk of isolated PM thundershowers, starting about Friday and probably going through the Memorial Day weekend. The unofficial start to summer is going to feel pretty "official".
