Brrr… well that was a bit of a cool start this morning with temperatures running in the 30s and lower 40s. If you thought it was bad here, how about in northern New England where it was snowing this morning?! Mount Washington picked up 2.6″ of snow overnight and Caribou Maine picked up it’s 2nd latest measurable snow on record, and after a record setting winter in Maine, that was probably the last thing folks wanted to see to start Memorial Day weekend.
Despite the chill, we’ll be chillin’ in a summery pattern ahead as warmth, and eventually humidity build back in. We just have to wait a day as highs today struggle to reach the middle 60s despite a ton of sun. The breeze is a gusty one too with occasional bursts of wind over 25-30mph.
That breeze continues to be active Sunday, however, the direction changes to the southwest and that means a warm-up as temps near 80 in the afternoon with mostly sunny skies. Memorial Day itself is also near 80, although more clouds move in for the afternoon. A few rain showers are possible north of the MA/NH border Monday afternoon, but much of the area in southern New England stays dry.
Tuesday-Friday next week will features temps in the mid 80s or warmer with higher humidity. Much of the time is dry, but once and a while a few pop-up storms develop in the afternoon by Thursday/Friday. The best chance for a storm will be the farther north and west you go.
Enjoy the weekend and remember all those who have served this great country.
