Weekend Outlook: May 12-15, 2023

Enjoy the warm weather for a few more days, because it will go away this weekend, at least temporarily.

Drought isn’t a problem yet, but unless the pattern turns wetter soon, it could become an issue. Image provided by the National Drought Mitigation Center.

High pressure remains in control into Friday, however, a cold front will begin to approach the region. There will be just enough moisture in the air to make it feel a little humid, and this may help to trigger a few showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening. The cold front moves through at night, possibly with another shower or two, and may slow down near the South Coast, keeping some clouds around into part of the day, otherwise, drier air will filter in, but it will remain warm. With high pressure building in, we’ll have clear skies and light winds for Saturday night, resulting in a cooler night due to radiational cooling. Sunday should feature plenty of sunshine, but it will be cooler than the past few days. After another chilly night Sunday night, temperatures will start to moderate on Monday.
