Weather: Mais Non!


Mais Non!

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

Alas... May showers will return, as the high pressure moves offshore, and a low pressure system approaches our region from the west later today. This installment of wet weather will end late Saturday afternoon with a passage of a cold front, accompanied by some more scattered showers. Thereafter, but not for long, a dry tongue of high pressure will nudge in from the northwest, assuring improving conditions for Sunday. However, there are indications that yet another storm will ripple along a stalled weather boundary just to the south of us, bringing more showers and cooler weather in its wake for Sunday night and into Monday.

Today: Clear start and cloudy finish, with showers likely by evening. Light westerlies will turn to onshore breezes near the coast. High 66F (19C)

Tonight: Cloudy and showery, with a scattered rumble of thunder possible. Low 52F (11C)

Saturday: Cloudy, with precipitation tapering off early. Some breaks in overcast by midday may be followed by yet another batch of showers in the afternoon. Highs in mid to upper 60s (18-20C)

Saturday night: Clearing, turning colder late. Low 46F (8C)

Sunday outlook: Sunshine gradually fading throughout the afternoon, with rain approaching from the west. Highs 60F (15C) near the coast with southeast seabreezes developing, mid to upper 60s (17-19C) inland.
