First, anyone that tells you they know what the temp will be next May is lying....no one knows or can predict. This links says the average for May is low-48F and high-70F with 3 or so inches of precip. Personally, May is a pretty good month to visit...

Look, you're from Boston? Our temperatures are not all that different. Also, on the East Coast you have the dampness factor so that even though your temperatures might be higher, it might actually feel colder. I was once in Philadelphia in December, and their 40 F felt like our 25 F.

In my opinion, October can be as iffy as May, and their weather is comparable. If you're lucky, they're both great times to visit. We are very comparable to Boston weatherwise, probably cheaper though, as I see you're saving up money.
