Long-Range Forecast – May 22

Believe it or not, the longest consecutive stretch of 70°+ days in Providence this year is three from May 10-12 when the temperature actually averaged over 80°. Aside from that brief run of warm weather, there have only been two other times with back to back 70°+ days. Needless to say, there are plenty of Southern New Englanders yearning for a warm stretch of weather. After all, the normal high temperature is 70° at this time of the year.

That warm stretch of weather will not happen over the Memorial Day weekend. In fact, it looks a little cool and unsettled Friday to Sunday. Highs will generally be in the 60s, with the threat of showers. The best chance of rain Saturday and Sunday is in the afternoon and early evening. Memorial Day should be mostly sunny and seasonably warm, with highs in the 70s. A cold front will move through on Tuesday possibly bringing a few showers.

The weather looks pleasant from Wednesday into late next week and the start of June. There may be a warming trend that gets the temperature back close to 80 inland by next weekend. As mentioned in the video, there is some uncertainty about the precipitation forecast, particularly in days 8-14. Right now, it looks mainly dry over the next couple of weeks with the best threat of showers in the next few days, and then again in the first few days of June.
