Cheesesteak Stop the Pain (May 6-8)
Friday looks like the rainiest day of the weekend. Saturday and Sunday…not too bad but meh. Let’s break it down.
Friday (May 6) high temperatures should reach the mid-50s statewide. Skies should be mostly cloudy. Rainfall is likely and could be moderate at times. Winds will be light out of the E for most of the state. Coastal regions however could see onshore wind gusts in excess of 30mph as the coastal disturbance takes shape over/just off of the Delmarva Peninsula. Overnight lows should fall to about 50 statewide and rain persists through the night.
Saturday (May 7) high temperatures should reach the low-to-mid 60s statewide. Skies should feature a mixed bag of sun and clouds with isolated-to-scattered rain showers possible. Any showers that do happen look to be more of a nuisance rather than washout like Friday. Winds should be light out of the SE. Overnight lows should again fall to about 50 statewide.
Sunday (May 8) high temperatures should reach the mid-to-upper 60s statewide. Skies should again feature a mixed bag of sun and clouds with isolated-to-scattered showers possible. I think this will be the best day of the weekend once the rain clears out. Hopefully that will be earlier in the day rather than later. Winds should be breezy out of the W/NW once everything clears. Overnight lows should fall into the 40s. Let’s allow a small chance of a frost for NNJ elevations while the coast stays closer to 50.
An early look at next week indicates warmer temperatures with highs in the upper-60s and 70s, possibly flirting with 80 midweek away from the ocean. More rain is possible but of an isolated-to-scattered nature (showers and thunderstorms)…not the prolonged widespread wet conditions we had this week. Everyone have a great weekend and be safe! JC
