The weather for the first week (May 1-7) of May will be a nicer one in comparison to last week, although rain is still likely for the second half of this week. At least the weather Monday through Wednesday is looking beautiful.
Monday, May 1: On Monday, the weather will be gorgeous with mostly cloudy skies in the morning, then turning partly cloudy in the afternoon. Highs will be back to mild getting into the mid 70s, so it will be a great day to head outside, unless you are an allergy sufferer with very high tree pollen right now.
Tuesday, May 2: A front with a round of rain and thunderstorms will push through Monday night, clearing out by Tuesday morning. That will allow for a nice Tuesday, featuring mainly sunny skies with temperatures closer to average but on the positive anomaly side in the 70s. There is the slight chance for a leftover morning shower, but other than that it will be sunny and dry.
Wednesday, May 3: On Wednesday it will still be nice besides the fact that temperatures continue to gradually cool. Expect sunny to partly cloudy skies as clouds begin to stream in from our late-week storm.
Thursday, May 4: Speaking of our late-week storm, it’s going to arrive on Thursday. It’s going to be so much cooler with a light rain arriving during the afternoon. There may be a few patches of blue in the sky early, but overall it will be a wet, cloudy day.
Friday, May 5: On Friday, a few more rounds of showers are likely as those cooler temperatures remain in place. Again, the rain will be mostly light and by the time the rain ends Friday night, we’ll be looking at one to two inches of rainfall. The drought in our area has ended, and we are in a slight surplus in the rain department in terms of year-to-date, but any drop we get we’ll take it.
Saturday, May 6: Then heading into the weekend, it’s looking perfect, as of now, featuring sunshine and a few clouds on Saturday with high temperatures in the low 60s.
Sunday, May 7: Similar conditions can be expected for your Sunday, with even more sunshine in the forecast along with slightly warmer temperatures. Sounds like a great day for the Wilton Go Green Festival.
