Warming up to 80 today, and watching for a cut-off low…

May 1st, 2013 at 7:35 am by under Weather

High pressure is now off to our east, and a consistent southerly flow has set up over the region.  This is bringing about a very nice start to the month of May, with morning temperatures in the mid-upper 50s… and afternoon highs expected to be near 80-degrees!  (Normal temps are 67/47).  With abundant sunshine, once again we have a high UV Index, and if you have fair skin it will only take 20-30 minutes for you to burn.

We are still watching for an area of low pressure to cut-off from the main flow at the end of the week:

This will slowly work towards us… the placement and timing are still a bit in question, as is typical of this type of low.  The old saying, “Cut off low, weather person’s woe” will ring true!  As it gets closer to us, though, the rain chances will increase and temperatures will cool to near-normal values:

Right now it looks like the slight chance of a spotty shower–especially west of town–on Friday, with the best chance of rain coming Sunday through Monday.  But stay tuned!
