For early this morning, showers were moving offshore of Nantucket in
association with an exiting frontal boundary.
For the remainder of today, drier air will makes its way across the
region while skies clear. Temperatures will warm into the mid 70s to
low 80s this afternoon, while along the south coast it will warm
into the mid 60s to low 70s. Later today, a cold front will drop
south across the region and may trigger a few showers.
For tonight, it will be partly cloudy with lows falling back into
the mid 40s to low 50s.
On Thursday, as high pressure builds over the region, it will be
sunny with temperatures slightly cooler than today. Highs will top
out in the 70s, however sea breezes along the coast will cap highs
in the 60s.
Under clear skies Thursday night, lows will relax back into the
upper 40s to mid 50s.
The high will shift southeast of the region Friday and Saturday
enabling unseasonable warmth to blanket the region. Highs on Friday
and Saturday will warm into the 80s, with 70s along the south coast.
Lows Friday night will only fall back into the mid 50s to mid 60s.
It will be dry on Friday through most of Saturday. But a back door
cold front bearing down on the region later on Saturday may trigger
scattered showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms.
Looking to the remainder of the Memorial Day weekend, scattered
showers may linger for Sunday and Monday, however it will not be a
washout. It will be cooler with highs averaging in the 60s both
days, but across western sections highs could reach the low 70s.
Lows on Sunday and Monday mornings will range in the 50s.
