Sun and Clouds Saturday; Showers Possible Sunday

After a nice Friday, it looks like decent weather will continue into the weekend in Southern New England. It will be mainly clear early Saturday with low temperatures in the mid to upper 40s. Clouds will build during the day, especially away from the coast, and a passing inland shower is possible in the afternoon. It will be seasonable, with highs in the mid 60s and a light southwest breeze. The breeze will keep it a few degrees cooler near the coast.

Pop-up showers are possible in the interior Northeast on Saturday

A disturbance moving through New England on Sunday will trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms. It will be near 50 degrees early in the day, and the best part of the day will most likely be the morning. The temperature may climb into the low to mid 60s before falling in the afternoon as clouds develop and showers and thunderstorms pop up. It’s possible there could be small hail in any thunderstorms because of relatively cold air a few thousand feet above the ground.

Monday and Tuesday look mainly dry and a bit cool. Both days will feature lows in the low to mid 40s and highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. Clouds will build in response to the strong May sunshine and cool air aloft during the day. Pop-up inland showers are possible, but they should not be widespread.

Wednesday may be the nicest day of next week. It will be a bit milder with plenty of sunshine. A slow-moving weather system could bring an extended stretch of unsettled weather late next workweek into the Mother’s Day weekend. Showers are possible Thursday and Friday with highs in the low 60s. At this point, it seems the rain will linger into Saturday.
