Our traditional beginning of summer is here and this weekend it sure will feel like summer.{ } A general ridge in the atmosphere is building over us, { }so any afternoon showers or thunder will be really scattered and primarily out in the mountains of West Virginia.{ } The winds will stay light and from the southeast so some pretty good sailing weather in the Bay as the breezes pick up in the afternoon.{ } Check out our latest beach and Bay forecast here.{ }There will be some low clouds or early morning fog near the water and beaches but sunny by noon and watch out for that strong late May sun. { }By Memorial Day humidity will be increasing and you'll really notice the heat index.{ } Next week as we head toward June temperatures still above aveage.{ } Great weather for Rolling Thunder.{ } Make it a great and safe one.
