A change to the upper air pattern will allow warm air from the central and western United States to get pushed back into our region for the week ahead.  Highs will be in the 80s for most locations away from the immediate coast.

The May almanac shows that our normal high goes from the mid 70s to lower 80s, while the overnight lows move from around 50° to around 60°.


Temperatures that are in the mid to upper 80s are more typical of the first half of June, and this will be the warmest weather we’ve had since the end of September.  If we string together more than four consecutive days of 80° or warmer, it will be the longest stretch of temps that warm since early September.
