After a healthy amount of rain to finish the week on Friday, the holiday weekend looks reasonably pleasant. As low pressure pulls away from Maine Friday night, precipitation will end with some breaks in the clouds later at night, and clouds will decrease through Saturday with a fair amount of sun in the afternoon. Onshore winds will develop keeping temperatures in the 50s , but interior areas will reach the 60s. A good deal of sun is likely Sunday with temperatures in most areas reaching the 60s, but readings may drop back into the 50s in coastal areas in the afternoon as onshore winds once again develop. A cold front approaching from the west on Monday will lead to more clouds and the chance of afternoon showers, but most Memorial Day observances during the morning and midday should enjoy dry conditions.
Tuesday will be a bit rainy and cool, and a few showers will remain possible on Wednesday, then Thursday will feature a bit more sun with temperatures climbing into the upper 60s. Another frontal system will bring more rain to the region Thursday night and Friday.
