May 2nd and 3rd, 2009 Forecast

We enter an unsettled and showery weekend, filled with plenty of clouds and a premium on sunshine. While the weekend is not a total washout, the weather will not be spectacular this weekend as a frontal boundary lurks nearby.

Tonight: Evening rain and thunderstorms will move through the region, out of here during the later evening hours. A few showers may cross through the region after that but the night should remain pretty dry as the frontal boundary slides south. Skies will remain variably cloudy, with low temperatures generally between 55 and 60.

Saturday: Occasional glimmers of sunshine will give way to more clouds as a wave of low pressure works eastward along the cold frontal boundary. Temps will warm to the upper 60's save for the shore where temperatures will stay in the mid 60's. Rain could spread in late Saturday afternoon but could spread in earnest during Saturday evening.

Saturday Night: Occasional rain and drizzle, with lows in the upper 40's to lower 50's area wide.

Sunday: Rain should pull away in the morning but more showers are possible during the afternoon (rinse and repeat, eh?) as another disturbance moves eastward. Temperatures will be a couple of notches cooler on Sunday thanks to clouds holding for much of the day. Highs will generally stay in the lower and middle 60's
