With any luck the worst of the recent rain has passed us by, but that doesn't mean we're in for a dry holiday weekend. After yesterday's storm, May rainfall is now over six inches. That storm is now east of Cape Cod and headed toward Nova Scotia. In its wake we'll have a mix of sun and clouds, but mostly clouds, this afternoon with a slight chance of showers. Today's high should hit the mid 70s, our warmest day in a week and normal for late May.
A weak high pressure system will push into the area tonight and that will tip the scales toward more sun than clouds tomorrow morning, but a weak wave of low pressure passing to the south of us should lead to cloudier skies as the day progresses. Saturday's high will be in the lower 70s.
With that low pressure system to our south the forecast remains unsettled and uncertain into Sunday and Monday. Sunday looks to be cool and cloudy with a high only in the upper 60s. Memorial Day weather currently looks very iffy. It could warm to the lower 70s, but we'll see an increasing chance of showers or isolated thunderstorms as a cold front and upper level low approach us.
