Weekly Outlook: May 2-8, 2022

Looks like some wet weather is on the way this week, but that’s a good thing, because we need it.

March and April have been very dry across a good portion of the region. Image provided by the Northeast Regional Climate Center.

We start the week off with a warm front trying to move into the region today. It won’t get here, so we’ll stay cool but the rain ahead of the front will get here, with some showers likely this afternoon and tonight. High pressure tries to build in on Tuesday with some drier weather, but the clouds and cool temperatures will hang around. The next system quickly follows on Wednesday, with another round of rain likely. High pressure builds in for Thursday and this time we will clear out with some milder temperatures.

The end of the week and the weekend remain very uncertain at this point. We’ll have high pressure trying to build in from the north while low pressure moves across the Ohio Valley and then off the Mid-Atlantic coast, passing south of us. The question is, how far south? The models don’t agree on this at all, and that’s the difference between a rainy and chilly Friday and Saturday, or rain confined to areas south of the Mass Pike, or the rain staying completely offshore with some sunshine possible. We hope to have a better idea on this by the time we get to our Weekend Outlook on Thursday. Sunday looks to be a decent day right now with high pressure building in, but that will be influenced by what happens on Friday and Saturday, so it can change.
