Good morning everyone!

RECORD HIGH: 91 – 1980 RECORD LOW: 41 – 2006

High pressure building into the area from off the New England coast will give us a light onshore flow of cooler air today. Skies will be mostly sunny but again it will be hazy due to the wildfires in Alberta Canada, so instead of the skies being bright blue there will be a yellow-orange tint
Wednesday will be a little warmer ahead of a weak cold front that should come through dry at night.
Cooler and dry Thursday and Friday.
It now appears much of the holiday weekend will be dry with only a slight to low chance of showers Sunday and on Memorial day. Temperatures will be near seasonable levels.
