Weekly Outlook: May 6-12, 2019

We’ve had quite a bit of rain over the past month, so we’re due for a break, right? Yes and no. We do have more rain on the way this week, but there might be a couple of nice days too.

We’re starting Monday off with some clouds, and a few lingering showers across the Cape, but things will improve this afternoon as high pressure builds in. That big, bright thing that will appear in the sky this afternoon is called “the sun”. We haven’t seen much of it lately, but we will today. Oh don’t worry, it won’t hang around too long. Clouds come right back on Tuesday ahead of a cold front, with more showers in the afternoon, maybe even a thunderstorm. The difference between Tuesday and the recent rain? It’ll be warm ahead of the front. Instead of east to northeast winds off the chilly Atlantic, we’ll have warmer west to southwest winds. Temperatures could top 70 in many locations.

That cold front will stall out south of New England, but probably just far enough offshore to allow for some clearing on Wednesday as high pressure tries to build in. Another storm will start to approach on Thursday, but with the front stalled out to the south, we’ll be chilly once again as more showers move in. Friday looks like a cool and wet day, though it could get warmer at least south of Boston as the front tries to move in. Everything moves offshore for the weekend, with drier weather returning, though we could see another system start to move in by late Sunday.

Monday: A cloudy start, but sunshine gradually develops from west to east. High 58-65, a little cooler along the coast.
