Late week system looks juicy. Current guidance suggesting a soaking rain for much of the region.

Yep.  And then next week has that lingering upper level low chilly drizzle look.  At least on the GFS.  Might be the time to put down more seed.

After two very warm Mays (IAD with +5.0 in 2019 and +6.4 in 2018), I hope we are not due for a cold dreary one.  We just knew back in Jan and Feb that we'd get a perfect winter pattern....in mid to late spring.

Glad to see the sun coming out here now.  Need to enjoy it with all the rain coming up.

Just had some decent gusts blow into my backyard. Looked at radar and see why. Just to my North by about 3 miles there are some decent cells. And got the inflow off of a cell that went up lightning fast 1 mile to my East.

It’s gotten gustier in richmond, but that’s about it. The clouds have arrived, but I don’t expect anything but a brief shower if that. It looks as if they will go to my north and south. Then, more waiting for the next interesting event...

Does @C.A.P.E. have another freeze warning for tonight? :lol:

I hope not lol. Tired of covering the damn plants.

I think I'm safe here tonight with the wind. Probably mid 30s and no chance of frost.

I know there is a warning, I just doubt it it will verify here. I probably shouldn't, given the bust low a few nights ago, but the wind *should* prevent temps from going subfreezing.

Understood... LWX in their afternoon AFD seems to think that the winds will die down some tonight... but forecast lows are at freezing anyway... so its probably why our freeze warning is from 2am to 8am

Behind the front, a gusty NW wind will continue tonight, with
clear skies. The wind should prevent frost from forming, but
guidance is showing overnight lows at or below freezing for much
of the CWA anyway which warrants an expansion of the Freeze
Warning tonight for the entire CWA. Officially, the growing
season begins tonight in the highest terrain in our westernmost
zones, so this is why you are seeing the Freeze Warning that far
west, as temps are forecast to get as low as the upper teens
tonight in the higher terrain above 2000 feet.

Grass hasn't grown very little if any at all in the past week. That 25+30 degree  lows this past week definitely helped.  Tonight has a good shot to hit freezing . I've only mowed twice  . Let's keep it up. I don't care about @C.A.P.E. plants :whistle:

 

Why did he plant sensitive plants in March anyway.....lol

I think we'll see a sharp transition from cool to very warm or even hot around the mid-May timeframe. But as of the next 2 weeks, I think it'll be cooler and wetter than normal. Polar vortex is finally breaking down and the main source of cold air now is the arctic with all the snowcover still. Once that melts the temps are off to the races

That sucks. Have you ever turned a sprinkler on one overnight when there’s a freeze?
