May 28 Better weather for Memorial Day weekend, then a heat wave
May 28, 2022
Report Saturday morning
While we are still under the cycle of this ancient storm, most of the energy moved through last night and is offshore. The result will keep temperatures slightly chilly and add some clouds, but the showers and storms will be isolated in the afternoon and evening.
The weather continues to improve, warming up on Sunday and Memorial Day Monday. Then next week we prepare the conditions for a heat wave.
Satellite loop: 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m
Set up tomorrow
The original low pressure with this circulation has yet to be considered. The cooler air at altitude leads to self-destructive sunshine. That means the sun will warm the ground, which will help create more clouds today…and a few isolated thunderstorms later.
Radar simulation 12:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m
Just a guide – not perfect.
Most of the energy will be north of I-70, with a better chance of a thunderstorm in the mountains and through southern PA after 4 p.m

*Disclaimer due to frequently asked questions:
I am aware that there are some spelling and grammatical errors. I’ve made a few public statements over the years, but if you’re new here you might have missed it:
I have dyslexia and found it out in my sophomore year at Cornell University. I didn’t stop myself from earning my Meteorology degree and being the first to receive the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington area.
I miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell checker on my computer sometimes does a wrong to make it worse.
All maps and information are correct. The “wordy” stuff can get sticky.
There is no editor who can check my work when i need it and have it ready to ship in a newsworthy timeline.
I accept that and maybe proves that what you read is really mine…
It’s part of my charm.
