Pinpoint Weather: The month of May goes out on a dry note this weekend


Dry pattern sets up for the weekend

The last weekend in May will be a quiet one with a cold front moving through overnight into Saturday.  The front will squeeze out a few showers over the mountains, but the general thought is that dry air will overtake the region. The frontal boundary will also help to scour out all the low level moisture left behind by Bertha so a dry and mellow pattern is on the way.

Saturday looks nice with some clouds early in the day then plenty of sunshine.  There will be some clouds billow in the afternoon but the rain chances will be low. If we do see any rain I expect it to be light and mainly over the mountains.  Temperatures will still be in the 80s for highs east of the foothills, but normal highs are upper 70s anyway so not that far from the mark.

Sunday will be sunny and dry with a light breeze.  This looks to be a lovely day so if you have any plans that involve anything outside, you won’t be disappointed by the weather.

Monday will be another dry day and that pattern will linger into Tuesday. The next chance for rain doesn’t arrive until Wednesday.

The month of May did see a lot of rain in Roanoke and we shattered the record for rainfall during the month of May. 

  Also, record for the Spring season (March, April and May) was set this year too.

Stay Safe and healthy.
