Weekend Outlook: May 14-17, 2021

Typical springtime weather is expected right through the weekend. Some showers are possible each afternoon, but don’t go cancelling any outdoor plans.

Today’s satellite loop will look pretty similar to each of the next few days. Loop provided by the College of DuPage.

The weather pattern for the next several days will be fairly simple. At the surface, high pressure to the south will result in seasonably mild conditions through the weekend and into Monday. Temperatures have been on the cool side lately, so even though we’ll only be right around or a little above normal for the next few days, it will feel rather nice. While we’ve got high pressure at the surface, we’ll have a series of weak disturbances moving through aloft. So, each day will likely follow the same pattern – sunshine in the morning, clouds start to develop by late morning, and some widely scattered showers pop-up each afternoon. A few rumbles of thunder are even possible. Most of these showers will be light, and not everyone will see them. The best chance for them looks to be Sunday afternoon, but again, don’t wipe out any outdoor plans, as most of us will still enjoy a rather nice day.
