• The snotty weather that unsettled the East End’s Memorial Day will give way today. We’re expecting to see the sun by mid-day, with skies continuing to clear throughout the day and a high near 81 degrees. Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low around 56. Wednesday will be sunny, with a high near 74 and we’re expecting partly sunny skies on Thursday, with a high near 73.
