Well May is here and we are seeing the typical summer weather pattern begin. To take a quick glance at the forecast you would think nearly every day is a rain-out. What happens in reality is the heat of the afternoon triggers widely scattered showers that usually dissipate in and hour or so followed by sunshine. A close look at the forecast will show 50% chance of rain beginning 2-3 pm each afternoon. And the 50% chance indicates only a possible chance of rain here and there. 

Taking this into account plan your day with an afternoon break for a late lunch when the skies darken. The sun will be coming out in an hour or two. And the roads dry quickly.
