This week will end on a cool, cloudy, and clammy note, as patches of unsettled weather cross New England during Friday and Saturday. Some additional energy is forecast to dive off shore early on Saturday, igniting a secondary development east of Cape Cod. While most of this system's moisture will be well out to sea by then, a raw and drizzly backlash will, unfortunately, be our lot for the beginning of the weekend. As these storms consolidate into a large cyclonic pool, swirling over the Canadian Maritimes, we shall get under a cool and dry northwesterly flow. Although not an ideal spring weather, this will be an improvement, with sunny intervals on offer for Sunday - just in time for Mother's Day. In the longer range, it looks like the last few days of classes will be a torture, with fairer skies and warmer temparatures.
Today: Cloudy and rainy, with a chance of heavier showers and widely scattered thunderstorms late. Quite cool with southeasterly winds, with highs only near 54°F (12°C).
Tonight: Showers early, followed by mostly cloudy conditions. Winds shifting to north. Low 46°F (8°C).
Saturday: Cloudy with periods of light rain early, tapering off to drizzle. Some breaks in overcast developing towards evening. High 52°F (11°C).
Sunday: Chilly start, with partly cloudy conditions giving way to patchwork of clouds and sun. Morning lows near 43°F (6°C) will rise to nearly seasonal levels of the low 60s (1618 °C), with the help of strong May sunshine.
