Weekly Outlook: May 22-29, 2023

Dry weather is expected again for much of the upcoming week, but Memorial Day Weekend is uncertain right now.

High pressure builds in north of the region today, resulting in onshore flow and cool temperatures, especially near the shoreline. As the high moves off to the east on Tuesday, temperatures will begin to moderate a bit, with an even warmer day likely on Wednesday. A cold front moves in late Wednesday and Wednesday night with some showers, mainly north of the Mass Pike, followed by much cooler weather on Thursday. High pressure continues to build in on Friday, with temperatures moderating again, which brings us to Memorial Day Weekend.

Low pressure is expected to develop off the Southeast coast late this week and it will start to head northward. Yesterday, some of the models were showing the possibility of a cool and damp to wet Memorial Day weekend. Now, the models all show high pressure building in, keeping the low safely to the south. So, while our forecast is optimistic right now, there is still plenty of time for things to change.

The models all keep low pressure well to the south of New England for Memorial Day Weekend. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.
