A very gusty northwest wind will diminish Friday night under clear skies. It’ll be a nice night to sleep with the windows open as the temperature dips to near 50 by early Saturday morning. The Memorial Day weekend gets off to a fine start on Saturday with highs in the upper 60s at the coast and and low-mid 70s inland under mostly sunny skies through midday before clouds arrive late in the day. The wind will shift from light northwest to onshore around 10 mph in the afternoon. The sea breeze will make it feel a lot cooler near the water.
Showers/storms Saturday night
A warm front delivers a round of showers and thunderstorms to New England Saturday night into early Sunday morning. The best chance of rain in Southern New England is near Boston, and it’s possible that the front will move through without rain in part of CT, RI, and SE MA. The rain threat ends by dawn on Sunday, and the temperature will be in the mid 50s to start the day.
The temperature rises through the 60s and 70s into the 80s away from the coast on Sunday. It will be in the 70s near the coast. There will also be a slightly muggy feel as the dew point reaches the 60s. A weak disturbance swings through late Sunday. A stray shower cannot be ruled out, but widespread rain is unlikely.
It turns just a bit cooler on Monday, but it will still be relatively warm for the date. Expect highs in the 70s with a decent dose of sunshine. The weather looks unsettled in the middle of next week. Showers are possible on Tuesday, and it will be relatively cool Tuesday and Wednesday. Another round of showers may move through on Thursday before a seasonable or slightly cool stretch into next weekend. It’s a long way down the road, but the weather looks mainly dry for the first weekend of June.
