Regional Weather Story
National Weather Service Taunton MA
400 PM EDT Sat May 28 2016

A back door cold front will begin to drop south across the region
tonight, passing across the north shore, Boston, the south shore and
much of Cape Cod. Despite the cold front, lows tonight will still be
mild. Across the east coast lows will be in the upper 50s to low
60s, and away from the coast across the interior, lows will range in
the 60s.

On Sunday, the back door front will remain draped across the region
from the northwest to the southeast, causing a dramatic range in
temperatures on either side of this boundary, by as much as 30
degrees. It will be another hot day across the interior with highs
in the mid 80s to around 90 degrees. But over the eastern third of
the region, highs will only range in the 60s and 70s. Skies will
average out to be partly sunny. There will be the chance for
afternoon showers and possible thunderstorms across central and
western portions of Massachusetts and Connecticut.

On Memorial Day Monday, showers are likely early and throughout the
day, due to tropical moisture spreading north northeastward from a
tropical system over the Carolinas. This tropical plume of moisture
could produce locally heavy rainfall across our region with embedded
thunderstorms. Afternoon temperatures will average in the mid 70s to
low 80s, but it will be slightly cooler at the coasts with highs in
the upper 60s to low 70s.

Looking ahead, dry conditions with warm afternoons follow Tuesday
and Wednesday, and perhaps into Thursday, but unsettled weather may
return by the end of next week.
