After patchy morning fog, expect mainly sunny skies on Thursday. Some high and mid level moisture may spill over the ridge late in the day as a stalled front south of Maine and New Hampshire remains in close proximity. With plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures aloft, expect temperatures to climb well into the 80s once again. There will be an afternoon sea breeze, but even coastal residents will see temperatures make it into the mid 70s.

The chance for a few showers increases late Thursday night as the stalled front begins to track back to the north as a warm front. A very weak upper level disturbance will assist in triggering the precipitation. Patchy fog is likely once again in the valley locations and areas that receive local rainfall. The best chance for thunder will be over southwestern portions of the forecast area late at night through early Friday along the warm front as it lift through the region. We will be in the warm sector again on Friday with highs in the 80's and the chance of a pop up PM shower or T'storm as well.

An upper ridge axis will continue over New England through the weekend and into Monday. This ridge will be what we call a "dirty ridge" as several minor short waves combined with ample moisture will move through the ridge before getting dampened out and setting off scattered showers and thunderstorms at times. Under the ridge, a surge of summer-like air for Saturday with highs in the upper 80's and Lwr 90's! Even some Lwr 80's at the beach. After some morning sunshine, clouds will build during the afternoon as a cold front pushes through the region triggering scattered showers and thunderstorms. A few could be strong to severe across southern New Hampshire.

This "backdoor" cold front will push off the coast and back into New York state as High pressure builds over the Canadian maritimes. The High will wrap in cooler onshore winds from the east and drop our temps back into the 70's Sunday, even 60's at the beach! Low clouds & fog will also back in off the water making for mostly cloudy skies Sunday with the risk of a few widely scattered showers possible. The high off the coast will supply enough dry air to keep most of the region dry on Sunday, with brighter skies inland away from the coast. Memorial Day will see winds shifting back to the SW and temps climbing into the 70's and Lwr 80's Skies will still be fill with clouds, a few breaks of sun possible and the chance of a few pop us showers or thunderstorms.
