Dustin’s First Alert Forecast: Sunny skies and a comfortable start to the weekend

As we go into end of the week and last day of May, temperatures will feel more like late April with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s, thanks to an area of high pressure moving across the southeast and Mid Atlantic. With the comfortable air at play, lower humidity will linger into the air, making it feel very dry and comfortable. Lows will be in the mid 50s. If you plan to head to any sporting events or the Black Bear Festival in Plymouth, be sure to keep the sunscreen on standby and find a source of shade with the UV index on the higher end.

With the start of next week and going into June, the summer time heat and humidity will start to make a return once again, as temperatures will start to climb in the mid 80s in the beginning, then start to warm up in the low 90s, as daily afternoon showers and storms become possible. The storms that we will see to start the week are looking to be on the non-severe side, which is typical for the summer months. As we go into Thursday, an approaching cold front will start to interact with us, as temperatures will start to cool off next weekend. Still not seeing any severe weather at this time, but be sure to stay with us for ongoing updates. Temperatures at night will not cool as much either, as the muggy and humid air sticks around. Lows in the upper 60s to low 70s, feeling like late July and August. Average highs for this time of year are in the low 80s and lows in the low to mid 60s.

For those wondering about the tropics, there are no signs showing any tropical development as we go into the start of June.
