As we head into the Holiday Weekend, remember to keep it safe, especially on the roads. There will be periods of rain and breezy conditions tonight through Sunday, so the high traffic volume and the inclement weather will conspire against holiday travelers. Now, for the forecast...
Periods of rain on this Friday night, with isolated t-storms and breezy north winds. Expect evening temps in the 60s, with overnight lows in the upper 40s.
The weekend begins on a sour note, with the coldest day we've seen in a month. Saturday will be a cold, damp and blustery day, with periods of rain and gusty north winds. Highs will only make it to the lower 50s, with highs in the 40s across much of interior southern New England.
Saturday night will continue the cloudy and showery theme, and it will be quite chilly, with overnight lows in the lower 40s, but wind chills will drop to the 30s thanks to gusty NW winds.
Sunday looks better, with mostly cloudy skies and windy conditions, and passing showers still possible as the big storm moves to our northeast. But it will be warmer, with highs in the lower 60s. The stiff wind from the northwest will gust over 30 mph at times.
Conditions improve Sunday night into Monday, with mostly sunny skies expected on your Memorial Day. Morning lows will be in the mid 40s, with afternoon highs in the lower 70s.
