Hooray -- Cool air is on its way!
Looking for relief from the heat? Well, cool air from our good friends in Canada will certainly help bring a pleasant feel to the outdoors from the Plains to the Northeast this weekend, with a 20-30 degree plunge in temperatures.
Saturday
Refreshing air from Canada pushing into the Upper Midwest will cool off Minneapolis, Chicago, and Detroit. Showers and thunderstorms will fall in the Midwest and the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys into Pennsylvania and western New England. Temperatures in those regions will range from the 50s in the Midwest to the 80s in eastern New England.
Sunbathing will be a great idea on Saturday along the Mid-Atlantic coast with sunny skies and ideal temperatures, in the mid-70s. Further inland in the Mid-Atlantic expect the dreaded summer triple-H forecast: hazy, hot, and humid.
The Southern Plains will see showers, with partly cloudy skies in the Central Plains, and sunny weather in the Northern Plains. Temperatures will range from the 70s in the south to the 50s north.
In the Rockies, expect partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the pleasant 60s and 70s, with showers in the Northern Rockies and Intermountain West.
California and the Pacific Northwest should see its usual May weather - 70s along the coast and 80s inland.
Sunny skies will rocket temperatures up to 105 degrees across the Southwest.
Sunday
The cooler air that brought a refreshing Saturday to the Midwest will push into Boston and New York City just in time for Sunday. Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. will have to wait for cooler temperatures until Monday.
Showers and thunderstorms in the Midwest will push eastward into the Northeast at a snail`s pace making a game of bowling or a movie in southern New England enjoyable activities for the whole family.
New England and Pennsylvania will see temperatures in the 50s, but it will remain in the steamy 80s in the Mid-Atlantic with a likelihood of showers and thunderstorms.
The Lower Great Lakes and Ohio and Tennessee Valleys will continue to experience showers with temperatures in the 50s to the north and 80s in the south.
Expect pleasant weather in the Plains with sunny to partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the 60s to the north and 70s in the south.
The Northern Rockies and Montana will see showers and temperatures in the 40s through 60s.
Sunshine from Saturday will continue in the Southwest with temperatures near 100, with 80s and 90s in California. Fog along the West Coast will keep temperatures in the upper 70s.
