Forecast Last Updated at Friday, May 26, 2017 at 7:09PM

Finally!

Friday brought the long-promised break from the rain. After a breezy morning, the afternoon was near-perfect under mostly sunny skies. Will this be the start of a drier trend? No. A disturbance quickly moves east into the Southern Appalachians. Combined with much warmer temperatures Saturday, we'll have a shower or storm in the area later Saturday afternoon continuing into Saturday night. Sunday has scattered showers and storms. Maybe Memorial Day will be drier with only isolated thundershower coverage.

Forecast Discussion

A disturbance zips across the Ohio Valley into Virginia Saturday. That, combined with increasing heat from a Gulf high pressure, will produce widely scattered showers and storms Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.

A frontal boundary sets up from Virginia to the Mid-Mississippi Valley Sunday, slowly moving south and east. We can expect scattered showers and storms Sunday. Monday's weather fate depends on how far that front can push south, we kept an optimistic tone in this forecast with only isolated thundershowers. But that point is the biggest question mark in this forecast, greater coverage is possible.

Tuesday and Wednesday, the front will stall along the Gulf Coast. High pressure settles east across our region giving us two pleasant days.

Thursday, that front makes return visit as it oozes north. In response, widely scattered PM showers and thundershowers also return.
