Weekend Outlook: May 19-22, 2023

Some much-needed rain is coming this weekend, but don’t fret, it won’t ruin the entire weekend.

Record lows were set in numerous locations across the Northeast this morning, but temperatures will moderate over the next few days. Image provided by coolwx.com

Offshore high pressure remains in control for tonight and Friday, with dry and milder weather likely. We’ll still have smoke from wildfires in Canada dimming the sun at times on Friday, but overall it will be a nice day. Clouds will move in at night though as a pair of systems begin to head our way. A cold front will be moving in from the west, while a weak low pressure system moves up the East Coast. There are still some mixed signals with the coastal low for Saturday, which has a big impact on the forecast. Some models have that system send a batch of rain in for Saturday afternoon, others keep the rain either offshore, or confined to Cape Cod. We’re leaning towards the latter scenario at the moment. The cold front then moves through Saturday night with some showers along and ahead of it. High pressure then builds in for Sunday and Monday with dry and seasonably warm conditions, but we may still have some smoke drifting through, dimming the sun at times.

Many of the models are forecasting a bout of heavy rain this weekend, some keep the heavy rain to Cape Cod only. We’re leaning toward the latter. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.
