Saturday Forecast


DAYS 1-5 (MAY 25-29)
Memorial Day Weekend will feature generally nice weather, with the one unsettled weather interruption tucked into an 8-hour period Saturday night to early Sunday morning, when high pressure that brings nice weather during Saturday’s daytime gives way to a warm front crossing the region. Once this front clears the area early Sunday the humidity will go up and it will be the warmest day of the 3, and we will have to watch for a pop up shower or thunderstorm in isolated locations later in the day. A cold front will fairly quietly cross the region Sunday night and then high pressure will move in for Memorial Day with spectacular weather and no issues for outdoor observances. After that, we get into an unsettled period of weather as a frontal boundary will be in the vicinity Tuesday and Wednesday. It looks like we’ll be on the cooler side of the boundary Tuesday and the warmer side Wednesday, with a few episodes of showers and possible thunderstorms during those days, which will will have to fine-tune the timing of as it gets closer.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Highs 71-78, except 63-70 South Coast. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Episodes of showers and possibly a thunderstorm, mostly after 11PM. Lows 55-62. Wind SW 10-20 MPH shifting to W.
SUNDAY: Partly cloudy. A few lingering showers possible in southeastern MA until about 7AM. Slight risk of a passing shower or thunderstorm in any location mid to late afternoon. More humid. Highs 68-75 Cape Cod, 76-83 elsewhere. Wind WSW 5-15 MPH with higher gusts possible.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy evening. Clear overnight. Lows 55-62. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY (MEMORIAL DAY): Mostly sunny. Highs 68-75. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 50-57, 45-50 some interior valleys. Wind calm.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 30-JUNE 3)
A front should still be on the vicinity, leaning toward SNE on the warmer side with a risk of showers/thunderstorms during May 30, then the front pushing through with drier weather for May 31. June 1-2 weekend starts dry and turns humid and may end with a risk of showers/thunderstorms before fair weather returns to end the period. Temperatures near to above normal overall for the period.

DAYS 11-15 (JUNE 4-8)
A trough crossing eastern Canada may send a couple disturbances and shower/t-storm chances into SNE around June 5 and 7 (timing uncertain). temperatures overall should be fairly close to seasonal averages.

    Thank you, TK.

    Hi Vicki :)

    • Vicki says:

      Hi MassBay. I hope you have special weekend plans

      • MassBay says:

        You too, Vicki. Bet your seeing some grand kids!

        I’m grading papers, bike riding and seeing friends … Oh, and fixing a screen door :)

    Good morning and thank you TK.

    Barry knocked down Eric’s 90 to an 82 for Thursday. It will be humid though.

    • Woods Hill Weather says:

      That makes a bit more sense. We should be on the warm side of the boundary Wed & Thu which also will be the side with higher humidity, but the upper pattern nor the surface conditions support widespread temps near or over 90. The synoptic pattern MAY support a 90 somewhere by next Sunday, assuming the model consensus is in the ballpark, and then the moisture level in the ground may still make it difficult.

      Forget Logan. Their high temp of 88 on Monday is WRONG. It was either 85 or 86, tops.

      • Philip says:

        I certainly wouldn’t want to be in the SE U.S. this weekend…OUCH!!!!

        I can only imagine what their upcoming summer will be like.

        • Woods Hill Weather says:

          Well, early heat does not mean a hot summer there. In fact, they may end up a little cooler than average due to more cloudcover and cooler air leaking in from the Plains & Midwest. We’ll have to see.

  5. Joshua says:

    Thank you, TK.

    While I’m too busy and preoccupied to truly enjoy the nice weather it’s good to know that a consistent stretch of spring is upon us.

  6. Jp Dave says:

    Did anyone mention how beautiful it is today? Because it is…..

    • Vicki says:

      It sure is. Top 10 category.

      Six year olds bday party was switched from tomorrow until today. May compete with the folks pressure washing back of house and deck and patio but who am I to wonder. 😉

    • Woods Hill Weather says:

      I was too busy enjoying it! It was a chore day, getting flowers, decorating gravestones, and doing my lawn at home, but the conditions were ideal!

  7. JimmyJames says:

    I just got in from playing golf and it was great to be out there.
    Reading TK’s blog looks like a summer pattern with multiple chances of storms.

  8. Woods Hill Weather says:

    I think the region’s first real shot at widespread 90+ may come right after the first 7 days of June pass by.

    • Philip says:

      Our first official heat wave? :-(

      • Woods Hill Weather says:

        I don’t know. It will depend on if it reaches 90 in the same location(s) 3 or more consecutive days.

        • Philip says:

          My personal hope that 90+ will be a one-day stand.

          • Joshua says:

            Me, too. The thought alone is uncomfortable.

            But, I’m sure we’ll get plenty of hot days.

            Used to love the heat as a child. It meant school was out and I hated school.

            Sox have really played sloppy baseball for 2 nights in a row. Aggravating, unnecessary mental errors and some physical ones as well. They still seem asleep at the wheel.

            • Woods Hill Weather says:

              They have had a few episodes like this but I notice nobody really ever acknowledges their good stretches. Ho-hum they rebounded from their horrendous start and got above 500, and have been playing above 500 baseball since. They do have weak relief, and that has been a factor at times. They are still working on it. No team that wins automatically comes out and can’t lose. They’re human and sometimes the game gets ahead of them, collectively and individually. I’m not sure which, if either, is a bigger factor right now, but I still think they will be ok.
