Forecast: It's Going To Be A Cool Memorial Day, With Some Showers

A quick moving low pressure area will bring clouds and a period of showers or steady rain to the region today. A flow off the ocean will keep temperatures well under seasonal averages, many of you won't even seen the highs reach 60 degrees — that's more than 10 degrees below average.

There won't be a lot of rain, but enough to prevent outdoor activities from being completed in dry weather. The morning is the driest period with the best chance of showers from about noon until just after sunset.

Temperatures get back to average the rest of the week with highs near or above 70. The best days this week appear to be Wednesday and Thursday. There may be more showers Friday before we hit the weekend.

As we enter June, I still don't see any major heat or humidity for the area. Have a safe Memorial Day.
