Early Start to Summer
The season is ahead of schedule... I saw seersucker before Easter. This week brings July weather in May.
A weak front passes through this afternoon with a lingering isolated thundershower. That's it for rain until at least Thursday and maybe for the rest of this week. Warmer than average temperatures will be the prevailing weather story.

A weak front moves across the Appalachians this afternoon from west to east. Ahead of the front a lingering afternoon thundershower is possible. The front will stall to our south and east Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures will be slightly above seasonal averages each day. Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry.
The front moves to the north as a warm front Wednesday night, and warm high pressure overtakes the Southeast for the rest of this week and into next week. Thursday through at least the middle of next week, temperatures will be at least 10 degrees warmer than average. Record levels will be in reach early next week. Each day will have the potential for a heat-induced afternoon thundershower--isolated coverage at most.
