May 23 2023

Tuesday Morning Update

Temperatures will be comfortable, but the sky will remain hazy with smoke from the Western Canada wildfires. This is at high altitudes and not affecting air quality here on the surface. But it will dim the sun.

Temperatures at 6 AM

May 23 weather temperatures Tuesday morning

Morning Surface Weather

We don’t see an organized system in our region, but a storm is forming in the Southeast US with the infusion of tropical moisture. That will be our focus for the Memorial Day Weekend.

We continue to have haze in our sky from the Canadian Wildfires, but we will also get a refreshing cooler air-mass from Canada arriving Wednesday night.

Brief showers at night, then only scattered showers over the weekend.

If you have plans for the beaches, the wind off the water will keep temps in the 60s and there will be more showers there.

Smoke Forecast

We continue with that hazy sky. This latest plume is high in the atmosphere and not affecting surface air pollution.

Wet Holiday Weekend?

Thursday To Memorial Day Monday

Close attention on a tropical disturbance moving up the coast. There are a lot of uncertainties with this, however, it is worth paying attention to for the chance of rain, cooler winds off the ocean, and high water/waves on the coast and into the Chesapeake Bay.

Snapshot Friday

Winds from the ocean will keep cooler temps in place. It will be chilly in the 60s at the beaches. The chance for rain may be slower to move up the coast. This is something worth considering in the forecast with this weekend.

May 23 weather forecast Friday


Snapshot Saturday

The best chance for rain, especially for the beaches will be Saturday.

May 23 weather forecast Saturday


7 Day Forecast

The cooler air will be in place to end this week and the holiday weekend. The coastal storm is still uncertain with the amount of rain we may see. Just a chance each weekend day for now.

I am aware there are some spelling and grammar typos, and occasional other glitches. I take responsibility for my mistakes, and even the computer glitches I may miss. I have made a few public statements over the years, but if you are new here you may have missed it: I have dyslexia, and found out during my second year at Cornell University. It didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree, and being first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington region. One of my professors told me that I had made it that far without knowing, and to not let it be a crutch going forward. That was Mark Wysocki and he was absolutely correct! I do miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make it worse. I also can make mistakes in forecasting. No one is perfect predicting the future. All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky.  There has been no editor that can check my work when I needed it and have it ready to send out in a newsworthy timeline. Barbara Werner is a member of the web team that helps me maintain this site. She has taken it upon herself to edit typos, when she is able. That could be AFTER you read this. I accept this and perhaps proves what you read is really from me… It’s part of my charm.
