“Summer’s here and the time is right for dancing in the street”
Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer, and June 1 is the official start to meteorological summer. Either way, today is going to feel like summer.
Warm to hot weather is likely today with high pressure settling offshore. Many places away from the coast should get well into the 80s, but dewpoints only in the 50s and lower 60s will keep it somewhat comfortable. A backdoor cold front starts to drop down the coast on Tuesday, which will bring cooler weather to coastal areas during the morning, but inland, it will be warm to hot again before temperatures quickly drop during the afternoon or evening. Wednesday looks to be cool and possibly damp as some showers may accompany a wave of low pressure riding along that front as it starts to lift northward as a warm front again. Does it get all the way through? That remains to be seen, but more waves of low pressure riding along it bring in some more showers on Thursday and Friday. Our temperatures will be determined by where the front is located. For now, Thursday looks milder, and Friday cooler again, but this is obviously subject to change. High pressure looks to build in for the weekend with drier conditions.
Monday: Sunshine and a few clouds. High 85-92, cooler along the South Coast.
Monday night: Partly cloudy. Low 64-71, cooler along the coast from the North Shore into southern Maine.
Tuesday: A mix of sun and clouds. High 66-73 for the coast of NH and Maine, 74-81 for east-coastal areas in Massachusetts, and 82-89 elsewhere, but temperatures will drop sharply in the afternoon.
Tuesday night: Mostly cloudy. Low 49-56.
Wednesday: Plenty of clouds with some showers late in the day and at night. High 62-69.

Friday: Mostly cloudy with more showers possible. High 62-69.
Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny. High 68-75.
Sunday: A mix of sun and clouds. High 70-77.
