Awful. That’s the best way to describe the first week of May in Southeastern New England. The normal high temperature is in the mid 60s, and it has not made it above the mid 50s all week, with temperatures in the 40s to low 50s most of the time. More showers are likely to start the weekend, and there will also be some rain on Mother’s Day. The weekend will end with sunshine and drier conditions.
After a dry and mild start to the workweek, another round of rain is likely Tuesday and/or Wednesday as a system moves in from the west. That should leave by Thursday, and the workweek ends with dry weather. The progressive, but unsettled, pattern brings another rain threat next weekend. The following week does not look much different…dry early in the workweek, with rain possible by the midweek.
Temperature-wise, it does not look as cool as the first six days of the month, but we are unlikely to have any big, extended warm-ups in this pattern through the middle of May.
