Thumbnail image for 300mb_GFS_Model.JPG The last weekend of May will end much like it started with hotter temperatures and drier than normal conditions. A little more than a third of an inch of rain officially fell at Bush Airport for the whole month. That leaves us with a 4.00" deficit for the month. The last weekend of May is here and temperatures are moving up fast. The weekend will start with less humidity thanks in part to a weak cool front and an offshore flow. High pressure is quickly building in overhead so sunshine and drier conditions should prevail as you can see by the upper level jet stream weather chart for Sunday morning. That dry air mass will heat up quickly during these long May days. Daytime temperatures could top out near 90 for most of the weekend. The good news is that overnight temperatures could drop into the mid to upper 60s Friday and Saturday . Our next chance for rain could begin next Tuesday as an upper low on the West coast sends out weak mid level disturbances towards the state.
