An interesting weather set-up for today across Delmarva. Things will start to turn breezy out of the south and southwest...ushering in much warmer air. A front from the north will arrive later this afternoon with the chance of a few showers and storms. The timing of the storms looks to be between 4-9pm this evening. With the amount of potential energy that may exist in the atmosphere, we can't rule out a few of these storms becoming strong to severe with the biggest threat being damaging wind gusts to 50 mph.
As the front passes, cooler air will rush across the region keeping temperatures in the 80s on Friday and Saturday with a wind off the Atlantic for both Friday and Saturday, but especially on Saturday. After Friday and Saturday, it will really start to turn toasty. By Sunday and Memorial Day Monday bringing temperatures into the upper 80s and low 90s. A stray shower or storm possible on Sunday and Monday as a front will be falling apart as it arrives. There has been a slight shift on the timing of the front...it looks to be coming in a little earlier. This will bring the best chance of a shower or storm on Sunday over Monday...at least at this point.We take a dip in temperatures on Monday as the wind turns off the Atlantic, but overall...temperatures look to stay toasty into the last week of May with temperatures in the 90s for much of the week next week.
