Deteriorating Weather

After a 4-day super stretch including this stellar weekend, changes are in the works. Fortunately, the weather will deteriorate after the ending of the weekend. As a protective ridge of high pressure slips offshore, a return flow of more moist air will invade the Northeast in the days ahead. Consequently, it will be much gloomier at least the first couple days of the work week with some spells of rain and drizzle. Thereafter, another high pressure system will nose into New England but it will not be as delightful as the current stretch. The residual moist air will probably produce varying amounts of clouds later in the week so it will be tricky figuring out the extent of burn-off each day after clouding in each night. With the development of some breaks of sunshine each day, it can warm up well into the 70s but daily sea breezes will keep it cooler along the coast. This setup supports an eruption of showers and thunderstorms over interior New England so expect a daily dose of those farther and farther northwest of Boston. That’s the way it looks right now anyway. After that, a mass of summer heat in the middle of the nation will attempt to surge into the Northeast later Friday and Saturday. It could briefly turn hot before a backdoor cold front triggers some boomers Saturday night or Sunday and damp Maritime air rules later Sunday into Monday. Clearly, it is too premature to be confident of the Memorial Day Weekend weather right now. We’ll hope for the best but I bet that it will not be as delightful as this weekend has been.

Melissa Mack delivers her AccuWeather Forecast in the morning and Todd Gutner follow later in the day.

Make it a great week!
