Beautiful But Warm Day in May

M/Sunny & Dry
The Dry and pleasant May weather continues over the region, albeit getting on the warm side. Temperatures are slowly nudging upward each and every day reaching into the lower 90s this weekend heading toward the mid 90s for next week, perhaps upper 90s by the end of next week. The dry weather will continue as well for the next several days with rain chances remaining below 20% (and even lower along the coast).

This is a new product that I have been watching from Tropical Tidbits Climate Models. This is not a forecast but just an 'outlook'. Keep in mind, the 7 day period is the average of those days with some days above the values and other could be below the values. This is used to get a better idea as to what to expect (maybe).
