Forecast: A Few Light Showers Tuesday

Monday had to be one of the nicest days of the entire year, with full sunshine, a high temperature of 80 degrees and low humidity. Today will not be as nice, with more cloudiness and just the chance of a couple of showers.

The cooler temperatures today will be due to the cloudiness and the lack of sunshine. It's actually a good day to plant your tomatoes because of the cloud cover, which I hope to do myself this afternoon.

Sunshine returns for tomorrow and will continue for the rest of the work week and into the start of the weekend. We will have two more 70 degree range temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday before going into the 80s on Friday and Saturday.

Friday is probably the best beach day of the next five. Water temperatures are now warming well into the 50s and will start to get into the low 60s over the next five to 10 days. This will take a bit of the sting out of the water if you decide to go swimming, but also means that the sea breezes will not have the same powerful effect that they had last month.

Sunday and Monday bring a bit of questionable weather to the area as a funnel system pushes in cooler and moister air. There's a chance that Monday will have some showers. It's still early in the forecasting game for Memorial Day, so stay tuned.
