A sign that we are getting farther into spring, I heard my first Wood Thrush in the woods today! They have returned from their South American rainforest winter home. They are secretive, like deep. well-developed, layered woods, are sensitive to forest fragmentation & are 99% of the time heard rather than seen.
Note the Flash Flood Watches up southeast & southwest of our area.
This is important because it appears that this area of heavy, flooding rainfall will tend to intercept alot of the moisture moving northward north of the warm front.
That said, rainfall is looking increasingly spotty & light for our area tonight-tomorrow morning.
This, after breaks in the clouds today & some clearing tomorrow p.m. (60-66 today, 46-52 tonight & 60-66 tomorrow with northeast winds near 11 mph dominating).
Note how the wind (arrows) quickly completely run from east to southwest Sunday as warm front surges northward. This, after a chilly Saturday night with lows of 39-45.
With the sunshine, highs Sunday will surge to 70-77 over the viewing area.
Monday & Tuesday look warm as the warm front moves northward.
Highs Monday will vary from 72-80, followed by potentially 80-85 Tuesday.
Both days look humid with dew points reaching 65-70.
The warmth is all good news!
Showers/storms are possible near the warm front late Monday to Monday night in the area. Looks like the best coverage at the moment is along & north of Route 18.
A couple/few renegade storms may pop Tuesday.
Numerous showers & storms are likely Wednesday, followed by a brief break, then some more periodic showers/storms Thursday-Saturday.
There is the potential of a couple isolated severe storms.
There is a trend for dry weather May 11-13, then rounds of showers & storms May 14-17 before we see a period of dry weather.
Surface high pressure shows signs of dominating with some nice weather as a corn planting window opens.
Some showers & storms are possible May 24-25.
Dry weather & surface high pressure looks to follow, however, with nice weather. The planting window should re-open.
High pressure off the East Coast & strong southwest winds here signal hot, humid, dry weather here as we get into early June. There should be a nice planting window here.
The first 90 or lower 90s day is possible with warm overnights of 70-75.
This should allow for especially rapid germination & crop growth after a late start.
