A frontal boundary remained draped across our region this afternoon,
dividing the cool air in the east from the warm to hot air in the
west, thus causing a temperature variation by around 30 degrees. The
afternoon temperatures across eastern Massachusetts, from Cape Ann
to outer Cape Cod, were in the upper 50s to low 60s, whereas
Hartford Connecticut north to Springfield Massachusetts, warmed into
the upper 80s and low 90s.
For tonight and Memorial Day Monday, bands of showers and isolated
thunderstorms are expected due to tropical moisture from Bonnie
spreading northward from the Carolinas. This tropical plume of
moisture could produce locally heavy rainfall across our region,
especially closer to the south coast. Lows tonight will range from
the mid and upper 50s in the east, to the mid 60s in the west.
Temperatures on Monday will warm into the 70s, which is seasonable
for this time of year. It will be slightly cooler along the south
coast with highs in the mid and upper 60s.
Showers will diminish Monday night with lows in the upper 50s to low
60s. Some showers could linger across Cape Cod and the islands
Tuesday morning, but the day will unfold to be dry and warm with
highs rising into the upper 70s to mid 80s. Cape Cod and the islands
will be slightly cooler with highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s.
Looking ahead, dry conditions with warm temperatures will continue
on Wednesday. It will turn slightly cooler but seasonable on
Thursday with the slight risk for showers. Unsettled weather will
return Friday and Saturday and perhaps into Sunday.
