Boston, Massachusetts 2021-05-29 12:55:07 –
This Memorial Day holiday weekend feels like a time slip in March.
Over two inches of rain fall in several parts of southern New England all night, with even more water this weekend. Today’s highest temperatures can be record cold, with most of us staying in our early 40s and late 50s, making it one of the coldest days on record on May 29th.
Stable rains will fall this afternoon, but northeasterly winds will cause sharp fog and light rain, especially near the coast. The ferry has been canceled due to wind problems along the south coast. Today’s capes and islands feel like Nor’easter. Gusts can exceed 50 mph there, but 25 to 35 miles of wind can be seen elsewhere.
The winds will weaken a bit tomorrow, but it will rain again and a second storm is expected for New England. This second storm brings rain far deeper into northern New England and keeps it cold. Expect an additional 1 ½ to 2 inches of water until Monday morning.
Memorial Day is a difficult forecast. Unstable air over New England can lead to early downpour, but thunderstorms are unlikely. They should move quickly. Then we cross our fingers and toes and bathe in the little afternoon sun! This should help the temperature recover to the mid-60s.
The sun and warmth will return on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and more rain and thunderstorms will return on Thursdays, followed by the first weekend of June.
