    We saw another foggy start across southern New England this morning. Conditions will continue to improve throughout the day, yielding a pretty classic spring weather day for most.

    At the coast, the development of an afternoon sea breeze may push fog, low clouds and cool temperatures back inland along the coast. Mariners operating along the coast should stay alert for reduced visibilities.

    Highs today will range from the upper 50s and low 60s along the coast to well into the 70s inland. A few valley locations may break into the 80s. Overnight, an area of low pressure will move southeast of Nantucket. This will usher clouds back into New England.

    A few rain showers may impact the Cape and Islands and southeastern Massachusetts. Lows will drop into the mid to upper 40s for most of the region, excluding the White Mountains of New Hampshire where temperatures dip into the mid to upper 30s.

    Thursday will feature partly cloudy skies with temperatures reaching into the low to mid-70s. An area of low pressure dropping down from the Great Lakes may produce scattered showers into the evening hours. One or two embedded thunderstorms aren’t out of the question with favorable conditions in place.

    An associated cold front will pass across New England during the nighttime. High pressure builds into New England Friday, resulting in ample sunshine and a drier air mass throughout the day with high temperatures reaching into the low to mid-60s, seasonable for this time of year.

    Looking ahead to the weekend, the cold front that traversed the region Thursday night will march back north as a warm front Saturday, bringing cooler temperatures and rain with it. Highs reach to around 60 degrees across the south and mid 50s north.

    Mother’s Day is looking mostly dry at this time, the biggest chance of precipitation being during the first half of the day. Clearing occurs as the day progresses as temperatures reach into the mid to upper 60s south and low 60s north.

    We transition into a warming trend next week on the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-Day Forecast.
