Temperatures will ride a roller coaster this week, but for the most part it should remain dry.

We’re starting the week off on a rather chilly note, but temperatures will quickly moderate today with high pressure in control. Tuesday looks to be fairly mild as well with some gusty winds ahead of a strong cold front. This front will be starved for moisture, so other than a few stray showers, you’ll notice the front when the winds shift. Wednesday looks to be a rather chilly day by mid-May standards with some gusty winds. As high pressure builds in Wednesday night, clear skies and light winds result in radiational cooling, with some frost likely. Temperatures remain on the cool side for Thursday, but should be a few degrees warmer than Wednesday. Warmer weather is expected on Friday with high pressure moving off to the east.

Next weekend is looking a little uncertain at this point. Another cold front will likely move through, with a wave of low pressure riding up the coast along the front. However, the timing and placement of both the front and the wave, as well as the amount of moisture accompanying vary depending on which model you prefer. Given how dry it has been recently, and the trends in the models to overestimate rainfall several days in advance, we’re going to lean toward the dry side for now, with only a chance for some showers.

The models all have differing ideas for next weekend’s forecast. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.
