Today was the 6th straight day below normal and below 70° but May sunshine goes a long way! What a nice Wednesday afternoon. Temperatures reached mid/upper 60s, still below the normal of 73°. May 2016 is the coolest may in 10 years with an average temp of 57°
Plan on a bit of a chill overnight. Clear skies and lighter winds will produce a nighttime low well into the 40s by early Thursday morning.
With plenty of sunshine we will climb again to the 70° mark Thursday - a great day! A change late day is coming as a minor system lifts toward the state bringing high clouds then eventually a chance of showers for Friday.
RAIN CHANCE RETURNS
There is minimal rain coverage for the next few days. The rain chance Friday and early Saturday will only reach 25% to 30% coverage so we are expecting many rain free hours, areas and dry time.
TURN UP THE HEAT
May 2016 is averaging a whopping 10 degrees cooler than last year. Ready for some warmth? As we forecast yesterday, the pattern change is set to take hold and the warmest air of the year is coming. High temperatures are expected to crack 80° on Monday and could reach the middle 80s by mid week.
LONG RANGE RACE DAY OUTLOOK
Rain for race day? The picture isn't quite clear of course this far out, some longer range machine forecasts are hinting at possible showers around race day Sunday. It's still quite a few day out but we are encouraged. The are no real definitive, ore powerful storms systems depicted at this distance. We will monitor and of course keep you posted so you can track it along with us in the days ahead!
