The weather has quickly turned around in Southeastern New England. A miserable first week of May is behind us, and there is plenty of mild to warm sunshine to enjoy early this week. A storm system will approach from the west late in the workweek. Look for increasing clouds on Friday, with showers possible by sunset.
Any rain should be out of the picture before dawn on Saturday. The first day of the weekend looks dry and relatively warm, with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s under partly sunny skies. Clouds will increase in the evening, and another round of showers is possible Saturday night.
A gradual cooling trend is likely late in the weekend and early next week. A trough digging into the Eastern United States means temperatures will most likely not reach 70° through next workweek. Showers are possible Monday, but it there will most likely not be heavy rain.
A storm system over the Southeastern United States needs to be watched for the mid to late workweek in Southeastern New England. Right now, it looks like it will not drift far enough north for a period of rain and raw easterly winds, but it is a close call.
We’ll also be watching for showers during the weekend of May 21-22.
