877 AWUS81 KBOX 282004 RWSBOX CTZ002>004-MAZ002>024-026-RIZ001>008-290500- 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. $$ KAB is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
