A very drizzly day ahead, but brightening over holiday weekend

A gloomy, drizzly day lies ahead, but forecasters say the weather should significantly improve by Memorial Day.

“Spotty showers can be expected today and perhaps drizzle,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Kim Buttrick. “Unseasonably cool winds off the water will keep highs in the upper 50s, which is almost 10 degrees below normal.”

Skies should be cloudy all day, with low temperatures dropping to around 50 overnight.

“There will be slow improvement into the weekend,” Buttrick said.

Saturday should be mostly cloudy and dry, with high temperatures in the lower 60s along the coast and in the low 70s in the interior. Clouds will remain through the evening as low temperatures sink to around 50.

Sunday will be partly sunny and back to normal temperatures, with highs in the 60s along the coast and in the low 70s in the interior. Some clouds should arrive in the afternoon as low temperatures drop into the low to mid-50s.

Early forecasts indicate Memorial Day will be picture-perfect, so long as it doesn’t rain.

“Monday will be the better day, but you can’t rule out the risk of a shower,” Buttrick said. “Right now we’re at a 20 percent chance.”

Skies should be partly sunny, with high temperatures cresting in the mid-70s and nearly 80 in the interior. More clouds should appear in the evening as low temperatures sink to the high 50s.
