Cool beginning to May
A sneaky upper level trough slid past the area on Wednesday and triggered a few unexpected showers just south of the area. Once again, a quick moving trough will move by Thursday Evening and another on Friday Evening bringing patches of clouds. Like Wednesday, while rain is not expected, a sprinkle can't be completely ruled out.
A mostly sunny and cool start will give way to a comfortable afternoon with highs in the low 70s and a few clouds returning during the afternoon and evening. Winds will be light and northerly. Along with very low humidity the weather will be almost ideal for outdoor activity. Overnight, skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with lows once again returning to the lower 50s. The dry air and cool temperatures may once again allow the option of open windows rather than running air conditioners.
