5/27 – Rob Knight’s “Sunny & Less Humid” Memorial Day Weekend Forecast
High-pressure will be the main factor shaping the weekend forecast.
A weak upper low-pressure system could form in the eastern Gulf of Mexico over the weekend, but is not expected to impact the local weather.
Today and Saturday are expected to be nearly cloudless with comfortably low humidity. As the surface high pressure slips to our east on Sunday, winds will gradually turn onshore, increasing moisture and relative humidity values somewhat, but not oppressively so. Overall, a rather nice weekend weather-wise across the area.
A largely east-southeast flow regime will be in place on Monday and Tuesday, and this will allow for gradually deeper moisture to feed into the region. Conditions on Wednesday and Thursday will be very similar to those seen on Tuesday, but the influence of a minor disturbance parked over the eastern Gulf of Mexico will be more prevalent. This will allow for shower and thunderstorm activity to begin forming along weak sea-breeze boundary boundaries as early as mid-morning.
