May and June also tend to be the time when cool air retreats into Canada and warm air from the south, makes a return with thunderous outbreaks. There's nothing better, in my mind, than looking at big puffy cumulus clouds, billowing into thunderheads across a bright blue sky.
We'll be free of any significant storms for a while, but a quick moving system will sail south of us today and tomorrow with chilly showers in the southern part of the state.
It'll be a slow and gradual trend toward warming, but we'll get back to average by the weekend. A spike in temps and humidity values into our first week of June could bring in a few more thundery outbreaks.
Don't worry, temps over the weekend will warm too, but have a plan 'B' just in case a few big fat clouds decide to drift overhead Saturday evening or Sunday
