The temperature will warm through the 50s into the 60s by late in the morning on Thursday under partly sunny skies. A light westerly breeze will shift to the south-southwest in the afternoon. Highs will be 65-70 inland, and 60-65 near the coast. There will be more clouds Thursday night as  a storm passes south of Southern New England. Showers cannot be ruled out late at night, especially near the coast. The low temperature will be in the 50s.

Friday may start with clouds and showers, but sunshine should break through by midday. A few more clouds will drift in late in the day. Highs will be in the mid 60s near the coast, and low to mid 70s inland. A surge of unseasonably cool weather will arrive early in the Memorial Day weekend, but there should be a nice turnaround by Sunday afternoon.

The low temperature will be in the 40s again on Saturday morning. Highs will only be in the 60s with partly sunny skies in the afternoon. A fresh northwest breeze will diminish late in the day. The wind will shift to the southwest on Sunday. Look for mostly sunny skies on Sunday. Highs will be near 80 inland, and closer to 70 at the coast.

The forecast for Memorial Day is tricky. It is unclear whether a cold front will move through Sunday night and stall near Southern New England on Monday. Our forecast is keeping the front well away from Southern New England, and that means fair skies and highs in the upper 70s inland, and low 70s near the coast. If the front is closer, then it we could see clouds and showers with temperatures in the 60s.

Some midweek showers are possible next week, but the long-term outlook for late next workweek is for summer-like heat away from the coast.
