Outlook Now-May 15April 26th, 2013 at 1:16 am by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
It has been a cool, wet spring, but the summer, breeding bird species continue to move northward to our area.
This is an interesting map that has been tracking all of the Ruby-throated Hummingbird arrival times this spring!
I also have been seeing the first Yellow Warblers of spring at Celery Bog:
Today looks rather breezy with high cirrus & sunshine with 60s after a cold morning near 31.
Saturday looks like a mix of high & mid clouds with dim sun. It will likely turn overcast from southwest north & northeast through late afternoon & evening. 60s look good for highs after morning lows in the 40s. Breezy conditions out of the south will make it a pretty mild Saturday.
Some scattered showers & isolated t’storms may start to push in later in the day & into the night. Showers will taper Sunday, followed by some partial clearing later & nice, warm south winds. Rainfall totals look to run 0.25-0.50″.
Highs Sunday will run near 70.
Monday & Tuesday look partly cloudy, windy from the south & warm with highs near 81 & overnight lows of 60-65.
With highs in the 70s & windy conditions, showers & storms will increase. Scattered storms may pop up & migrate up from the south, but one or more lines of storms will move in from the northwest with at least a scattered severe threat (mainly wind, some hail).
Showers may linger to early Thursday morning, followed by partly to mostly cloudy skies & highs in the 50s to around 60.
FRIDAY MAY 3 TO TUESDAY MAY 9………..
Although the pattern Friday, May 3 to Tuesday, May 9 favors normal to below normal rainfall (normal for that time is 0.84″), temperatures look below normal (normal high/low 71/48).
WEDNESDAY MAY 10 TO THURSDAY MAY 15………
Temperatures look to rebound to ABOVE-NORMAL levels (normal high/low 74/52) with BELOW-NORMAL rainfall (normal 0.72″).
