Repeated waves bring precipitation chances
The region is back into a west to east zonal pattern which has been the main forecast track since last fall. For those headed to campgrounds for the long weekend, make sure you prepare for periodic wet conditions. The weekend won't be a complete washout, but will have its moments of showers. I am not expecting any form of severe weather at this point.
Thursday morning may see a few light showers for northern and eastern areas. Western and southern areas will see clouds on the increase in the morning with showers breaking out Thursday afternoon. The entire region deals with showers Thursday night. Southern areas get a chance for an early morning shower Friday. Northern, western and eastern areas have a chance for a brief shower activity through the morning, with a spot shower possible through the afternoon.
Saturday starts off dry and with some sun. Clouds will increase once again, with showers breaking out in the afternoon. Saturday night will be another damp one state wide. Sunday, southern areas may see an early morning shower Sunday morning. Northern, western and eastern areas have a chance for a brief shower activity through the morning, with a spot shower possible through the afternoon.
Memorial Day starts off dry everywhere. Clouds will be on the increase during the day with showers breaking out over northern, western, and eastern areas in the afternoon. Southern areas may escape with only an isolated spot shower late in the day. High pressure returns to the region and dries us out on Tuesday.
Southwestern areas appear to be on the dry end of projected rain amounts through the forecast period. The higher elevations of the western mountains and central highlands could potentially receiving the most rainfall from off and on shower activity through the long weekend.
