GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS THIS EVENING WILL USHER IN UNSEASONABLY COOL
AIR INTO THE REGION TONIGHT.  WINDS WILL DIMINISH OVERNIGHT ALLOWING
FOR CHILLY TEMPERATURES IN THE TYPICALLY PRONE OUTLYING LOCATIONS.
A FREEZE WARNING HAS BEEN POSTED FOR NORTHWEST MASSACHUSETTS...WHERE
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BOTTOM OUT IN THE LOWER 30S.  FROST
ADVISORIES HAVE BEEN POSTED FOR SOUTHWEST AND NORTH CENTRAL
MASSACHUSETTS...WHERE LOW TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO DIP INTO THE
MIDDLE 30S.  THE REST OF THE REGION SHOULD SEE LOW TEMPERATURES IN
THE MIDDLE 30S TO THE LOWER 40S.

HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING IN FROM THE WEST WILL BRING SUNNY SKIES ON
SATURDAY...BUT TEMPERATURES WILL BE BELOW NORMAL TO START THE
HOLIDAY WEEKEND...ONLY TOPPING OUT IN THE LOWER TO MIDDLE 60S.
GUSTY WINDS WILL MAKE IT FEEL EVEN COOLER THAN THE ACTUAL
TEMPERATURES.

HIGH PRESSURE MOVES OFF THE COAST SUNDAY AND MEMORIAL DAY...ALLOWING
FOR MUCH WARMER AFTERNOON/S AS WINDS SHIFT TO THE SOUTHWEST.  AFTER
A CHILLY START EARLY SUNDAY MORNING...HIGH TEMPS SHOULD REBOUND TO
BETWEEN 75 AND 80 DEGREES DURING THE AFTERNOON UNDER PLENTY OF

MEMORIAL DAY WITH JUST THE RISK OF FEW PASSING SHOWERS...BUT A
WASHOUT IS NOT EXPECTED.

MUCH OF THE NEXT WORK WEEK LOOKS VERY WARM TO HOT ALONG WITH SOME
HUMIDITY AS WELL.  THIS IS A RESULT OF A BERMUDA HIGH PRESSURE
SETTING UP...WHICH IS KNOWN TO BRING WELL ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES
INTO SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND. ITS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION THAT SOME
LOCATIONS TOP 90 DEGREES FOR A DAY OR TWO TOWARDS THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK...BUT WILL HAVE TO SEE HOW THINGS UNFOLD.
