If you’re looking at your smartphone, you probably see a rain icon for both Saturday and Sunday, but don’t panic. This weekend won’t be a total washout. Expect more clouds than we’ve seen in recent days and the chance for a few showers. But good, steady rain is not going to happen.
Summer brings three-day weekends for a lot of people, and Friday may be the first day of your weekend. It’s also the best weather day of the next couple of days. Friday will feature nearly wall-to-wall sunshine and temperatures in the low 70s to upper 70s in inland areas. The coolest readings will be along the coast with a bit of a sea breeze.
A wave of low pressure moves south of New England on Saturday, and because of the track of the storm, it will keep us on a cool, easterly flow of air from the ocean. Since water temperatures are still in the 60s, the air will also stay in the 60s for much of Saturday.
There may be a few showers, especially later Saturday afternoon, but most of the daylight hours will be rain-free. Saturday night brings a little more humidity, a couple of showers, and an outside risk of a thunderstorm.
A cold front approaches from the west on Sunday, which renews the chance for showers. There will be some sunshine, and temperatures will be a lot milder, reaching the 70s and low 80s along with humid air.
As for the tides this weekend: They’re high in the early mornings and evenings, and low during the afternoons.
Next week is seasonable, but I do see signs of a significant warm up as we head closer to the end of June.
