March to July in One Week

The weather is giving us a sense of time travel this week. The week started with March-like weather and will end with July-like weather. After several days of cool, damp weather, the transition is underway to warmer/drier. This evening is pleasant with diminishing clouds. Friday is another step warmer and drier. Saturday is warmer again but with isolated afternoon and overnight showers or thundershowers. Sunday will be less warm with widely scattered, mostly afternoon showers or thundershowers.

We Have Winners!
123 photographers submitted over 700 photos in the contest. Then almost 30,000 votes were cast in voting for the best photo. The overall quality of photos was amazing--we could have produced 5 beautiful calendars from these submissions! Click here to see all the winning photos.
Additional photos will be selected as "Best of the Rest" photos during the next couple weeks as we do the design work on for next year's calendar.
Congratulations and thanks to all the winners!

Forecast Discussion

We ended May with sweaters and sweatshirts, but we will break out the shorts for June. I doubt we could find a complaint about warmer weather coming.

Low pressure east of Hatteras is fading out and is losing influence on our weather. Another low pressure building in the Gulf of Mexico has even odds of becoming our second tropical system this year but will not directly impact our weather. Friday, we can expect more sun, drier air, and warmer air. Saturday is even warmer but with isolated afternoon and overnight showers or thundershowers.

A front moves through from the north Saturday night. Cooler air arrives Sunday. Instability persists into Sunday, and widely scattered showers/thundershowers are in ply, mostly in the afternoon.

The front stalls just to our south Monday, and the next front from the north moves through Tuesday night. I kept the slightest risk of an afternoon shower or thundershower Monday through Wednesday out of an abundance of caution. One or more of those days may be dry, but uncertainty kept that precipitation in for now. Temperatures will be near seasonal averages Monday through Wednesday.
