If You Forgot, The Sky Is Blue

Hurray!  That bright orange object in the sky was the sun, and the sky can be blue.  If you didn’t see much or any of that sun on Wednesday, more sunshine will be visible through the early part of Thursday.  Get out early, get out often on Thursday to get that sunshine as clouds will once again increase through the day.  By afternoon and evening, another area of low pressure will move up from the south with a few showers developing.  Because of increased sunshine early in the day, temperatures will be much warmer with highs in the 60s for much of the state.  Friday will be partly cloudy with sunshine once again early on, but scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop through the afternoon.  Highs once again will be warmer in the 60s before any storms.  For the holiday weekend, Saturday will have showers and thunderstorms quickly developing through late morning into the afternoon.  Saturday will be the warmest weekend day with highs in the 60s.  Sunday will be the coolest, cloudiest and wettest day as rain will be fairly widespread across the state.  Snow levels will drop to between 6000′ – 8000′ for those that plan on being in the higher elevations.  Highs will only be in the 40s and 50s, making for another one of those “May” days we’ve had so many of this month.  Memorial Day Monday will be partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and highs in the 50s and 60s.  Be prepared for wet, stormy weather this weekend, especially on Sunday.

Have a great day!
