Low pressure just offshore will give us cloudy skies today with periods of mostly light rain, high temperatures will only be in the 50s along with brisk northeast winds.
Still another low pressure offshore will give us another shot of significant rain on Sunday with an inch or more expected. Temperatures will continue to be unseasonably cool with highs again only in the 50s, far cry from last weekend when highs were in the 90s.
We hopefully will dry out for Memorial Day but the day should remain mostly cloudy with a chance of showers in the morning, temperatures will not be as cool.
Tuesday looks to be the best day of the upcoming week with dry conditions and seasonably mild temperatures.
A slow moving frontal system will slowly approach the area Wednesday giving us a chance of showers that may continue through Friday however temperatures will be milder with an increase in humidity.
