5:25 pm
it's going to weaken things a bit. it's a weak ridge so we'll see modest warming and most of it away from the water. it's not going to change what happens when you wake up which is cloud cover the past couple of days. cloud cover again tomorrow. you will get the afternoon sunshine much more than tailed but sun the low cloud cover is back and likely on memorial day we'll start the day off cloudy, too. so low clouds lingering each morning this holiday weekend. modest warming only inland near the water chilly all weekend long and plan on sunshine in the afternoon and plan on needing a light jacket if you will be hanging out for a barbecue in the evening. low 70s tomorrow: warmer inland on sunday and a few degrees coming up on memorial day. next week we trend cloudier and once again, a little cooler. so after a hot start to the week, i see nothing resembling hot weather coming up next week. hat's your forecast; we'll be right back.
