With mostly sunny skies, expect a high around 92 today, with a southwest wind of 5-15 mph. While strong to severe thunderstorms are likely to the north and west during the afternoon and evening hours, precipitation is not expected in our area before 8 pm.
Tonight will be mostly cloudy; showers and thunderstorms are likely after 8 pm, with severe storms possible in the first – and primary – line of storms, which will move through between 8 pm and midnight. An additional batch of showers and sub-severe storms is likely before 3 am, by which all precipitation should end. Winds will be southwest at 5-15 mph (with much higher gusts possible in thunderstorms), flipping to the west at 5-10 mph late.
Thursday will be mostly sunny and 80, with a northwest wind at 5-15 mph. Thursday night will be mostly clear and 46, with a north wind of 5-10 mph.
Friday will kick off what is looking to be a crappy Memorial Day weekend. Friday’s high will be around 64, with increasing clouds and a chance of afternoon showers. A system will pass nearby, delivering useful rain to areas south of the Mass Pike, but we will be on the northern cutoff of the system; so we could end up with very little rain Friday afternoon and night, or we could end up with a beneficial rainfall. Regardless, expect lots of clouds and cool conditions for Friday. The Friday night low will be 44, with a continued chance of showers.
Any showers should end by early Saturday morning, giving way to mostly cloudy skies, with a high around 61. Saturday night will be partly cloudy and 45, and Sunday will be partly cloudy and 63. However, it is possible, depending on the extent of clouds, that we may not even reach 60 degrees either weekend day, as an northeasterly wind off the Gulf of Maine dominates the long weekend. Conditions may improve Monday, as it’s possible we get back into the 70s with more sun, but a lot of the newer guidance is instead projecting another crappy day in the upper 50s to low 60s. In any case, it doesn’t look like a great weekend, with the main saving grace being it doesn’t look particularly rainy – just cool and cloudy. And since this is New England, Tuesday looks nice, because that’s the first day after the long weekend. I’ll be sure to update this forecast, as conditions may shift regarding precipitation this weekend.
Have a great day!
