Welcome to your 'turning the corner' Thursday!
We are finally 'comin up around the bend' on this weather, and the sunshine is staring us square in the future. Indeed, even today more of us will get to be in the club that samples the Sun instead of those pesky showers. Here's what the NAM has to say about the upcoming impulse of energy we'll have to deal with today:
|NAM - Thursday 11am||NAM - Thursday 5pm||NAM - Thursday 11pm|
Just like the days before it, our first-half shot at sunshine will be disrupted by some scattered clouds by lunchtime. The difference is that this time around we'll see the afternoon pop-ups lose a little steam just outside our area. The north and eastern counties figure to be targeted, but even then it will only be a brief smattering. By sunset, the clouds will again part and we should be able to hit the ground running for Friday.
High pressure builds in and sticks around just in time for when we need it. HPC has a good handle of what goes on:
|HPC - Saturday||HPC - Sunday|
Warm air rotates around the back side of a minor but 'good enough' area of high pressure. This fetch will keep the temperatures building upon the previous days' work, putting us in range of 90-degrees by Sunday afternoon. Summer is coming back to June :-)
And, almost as if negotiated directly with Nature, we're going to hold onto the dry weather until Monday-- but then the Monday-Tuesday picture looks a lot more umbrella-worthy:
|GFS - Tuesday PM|
But we have plenty of time before we worry about this one. Until then, how about thinking sunglassses (and sunscreen) :-)
