Tracking cooler air to kick off a sunny Memorial Day weekend

TODAY: The cooler air has arrived this morning, as temperatures have fallen into the 50s across the region. This change continues to have an impact well into the afternoon, where temperatures only reach mid-to-upper 70s, and dewpoints fall into the 30s! It's the coolest day of the next seven, and it will be hard to find a cloud in the sky. Winds are sustained at 5-10 mph from the east northeast through the day.

TONIGHT: Temperatures are similarly cool overnight with light winds and clear skies. A few in some low lying spots will likely find themselves in the 40s by Saturday morning.

EXTENDED: With sunshine, and less influence from cold northeastern air aloft, we may manage to squeeze out an 80 degree reading or two on Saturday, but it's another mild day with low humidity. Things will start to actively warm on Sunday, where we return to mid-80s. We'll climb into the upper 80s by Memorial Day. Humidity will be low over the weekend, but may creep up on us by Monday afternoon. It gets much warmer feeling though, with temperatures near 90 through the middle of next week, and humidity climbing as well. It's too early to say for sure, but a temperature reading in the low 90s, with dewpoints in the 60s, could yield feels-like temperatures, or heat index values, in the mid-90s. Meager moisture levels will climb in the atmosphere by Wednesday of next week, but with little trigger for storm development, things are looking mostly dry.
