Dave Murray’s Latest STL forecast and weather disco…THE WEEKEND…May 17-18, 2014

*** Still a cool weekend on the way but with added sunshine and a dry air mass the afternoon’s will be very pleasant to be out and about…still chilly to cold…overnight and into the early morning hours…all is dry…no rain or storms…time to hack down the lawn.***

Thanks to everyone who tuned in for my Summer weather forecast on Thursday evening(no on our web site…fox2now.com and here on my Facebook page) Number 1 for the time period…all thanks to you!

Partly sunny skies and cool(a cold start)

HIGH: 65 degrees

SATURDAY NIGHT:

Mostly clear and cold
WINDS: North 5-10 M.P.H.

WINDS: South 5-15 M.P.H.
HIGH: 69 degrees

The warm up goes on into next week…75 on Monday…80 on Tuesday and 85 on Wednesday..a few showers popping Wednesday night and Thursday…looking limited right now

THE WEATHER DISCO:

The big slow moving low pressure will slide off to the east/northeast over the weekend..that will break down the northerly flow and allow the zonal flow to come back…resulting in the slow warm up…slow the key word. Overall a pretty good weekend on the way…cool but pleasant afternoons and chilly to cold nights…maybe one last fire in the fireplace. Then next week we start a spring warm up…quiet weather pattern. Some showers trying to pop Wednesday night and Thursday…I’ll take a look into the holiday weekend…early next week. Have a great weekend…be safe.
