10:15 AM | *Major warm up next week as the month of May begins, but not yet the permanent switch to summer*

There will be another chilly shot of air dropping southeastward this weekend into the Northeast US and Sunday will turn out to be cooler-than-normal for this time of year, but there are signs that a major warm up is coming next week.  In fact, it looks like the major warm up will coincide quite nicely with the calendar change to May (on Tuesday) with the 80’s quite likely for highs during this warm stretch of weather - perhaps even with a run at the 90 degree mark at some point later next week.  Looking even farther ahead, next week’s warm up does not appear to be the end of the cooler-than-normal air masses coming our way as it is likely to turn much cooler again during the second week of the new month.

7:00 AM | Weekend shaping up to be pretty nice

Low pressure is pushing slowly away from the Mid-Atlantic region today and there will be enough residual moisture in the area to keep skies mostly cloudy across the Tennessee Valley. Another low pressure system will form quickly later today across the southern Plains and it will raise the chances for showers around by later today and for the day on Thursday. High pressure will build into the region at the end of the week and likely pave the way for a nice weekend.

Low pressure will move slowly through the region today and there will be plenty of clouds and residual occasional light rain and drizzle. A better day is on tap for Thursday, but another low pressure system should bring more rain to the area by the end of the work week. High pressure will build into the area on Saturday and then a cold frontal passage on Saturday night will usher in cooler air for Sunday.

Low pressure will move slowly over the next couple of days from the Gulf region to the Mid-Atlantic coastline and this will result in a soaking rain event around here from late today into later tomorrow. Rainfall amounts from later today into Wednesday will likely end up in the 1-2 inch range in the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor. Another low pressure system and its associated cold front may affect the region with more rain at the end of the week.

7:00 AM | Still somewhat unsettled across the Tennessee Valley

Low pressure is pushing towards the Mid-Atlantic coastline from the Gulf region and there will be enough moisture in the area to keep alive the threat of showers in the area. By Wednesday, as the low pushes farther away from the Tennessee Valley, our chances for showers will diminish and temperatures will stay rather mild with highs near 70 degrees for much of the remainder of the week.
