Latest Boston Barry Burbank
It gives me great pleasure to forecast a wonderful weekend for all outside activities including all of the weddings, graduation parties, sports events, etc, etc.
Good Morning on this Memorial Day 2014. Let us not forget that it is a holiday for us to honor and remember the men and women who have died while serving in our country’s armed forces.
It would be so great to have a repeat of last weekend’s weather when it was so beautiful but the weather could be worse. It will certainly NOT be a washout but showers are probable all three days especially farther west and north of Boston.
The building clouds lead to a few widely scattered sprinkles and brief showers and this action will be repeated today and as the atmosphere becomes a bit more unstable, the showers may be heavier in a few spots with lightning and thunder not impossible.
The muggy, wet weather exited just in time to provide us with an absolutely splendid Saturday for so many outside activities including the many college commencements in the region. You know that it was New England May weather at its very best.
It just doesn’t get any better than yesterday for Mother’s Day. How could the weather be any nicer? Nearly unlimited sunshine, low humidity and splendid temperatures made it close to perfection.
A cold front moved across the region overnight and it has shifted offshore so much drier air has arrived but the airmass is still warm so all systems are go for a splendid Mother’s Day.
Although it will be breezy today, it will be less harsh with a few spikes to 20-25 mph. The atmosphere will be more stable today but some patches of passing clouds and an isolated spritz cannot be ruled out as temperatures climb to the lower 60s except upper 50s to near 60 over the Worcester hills.
In this first full week of May ahead, expect average temperatures with highs mostly in the lower to middle 60s and overnight lows mostly in the lower to middle 40s.
