Here we are with a 3 day weekend, trying to kick off the summer holiday season and we have weather that is still reminiscent of late April and early May.

The day started with sunshine but as expected, the clouds moved in and held the temperature a few degrees below normal, only around 70.

Only a handful of sprinkles around but not exactly beach weather. It was even worse to our south with occasional rain down along the southern NJ shore.

Unfortunately, there are no signs of warmth over the next couple of days and the threat for some wet weather will actually increase. It appears Sunday will start with clouds then a few breaks are possible.

Highs will once again make it to within a few degrees either side of 70.

Much of the time will be dry though so outdoor activities should not be hampered. I can’t say the same though for Sunday evening into Sunday night and part of Memorial Day.

An area of showers and thunderstorms currently in the midwest and Miss valley will be moving towards us. It’s likely to reach our areas with its main impact coming Sunday night through Monday afternoon.

Then a few breaks, followed by another chance of a shower or thunderstorm. So, we’ll really have to pick and choose the right time to be outdoors on Monday. This will also keep temperatures in the 60s.

Better weather is expected to arrive for Tuesday on through the rest of the week. It will get brighter and temperatures will respond by climbing into the 70s.

So even though it’s not the best of weather conditions, please have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day holiday and remember the true meaning on the day by paying respects to those we lost to grant us our freedoms.
