Current Forecast

The Spring Game is almost here and while the calendar will say May, it’s going to feel more like late June and early July!

High pressure is going to be in control, which means plenty of sunshine, but it’s still spring so we need something extra to warm us up into the middle and upper 80s as expected. That something extra is wind. I’m expecting a gusty southwest wind at 10 to 30 mph, gusting near 40 mph for much of the day. The one difference from late June and early July? The humidity won’t be as high!

With the added heat and sunshine, it’s advised that we all drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and don’t forget the sunscreen!

Here is the hour by hour forecast:

  • 11 AM: Mostly sunny, 75 degrees, southwest wind at 10-20 mph.
  • 1 PM: Mostly sunny, 85 degrees, southwest wind at 10-25 mph.
  • 3 PM: Mostly sunny, 90 degrees, southwest wind at 10-25 mph.
