Forecast: The Final Weekend Of June Will Be Perfect For Summer Activities

The final weekend of June is upon us and the weather continues to look similar to the past several days and not much different from last weekend.

High pressure, which often keeps it dry and pleasant, will be in control of our weather throughout the weekend.

Many of you take off Fridays during the summer and today looks just fantastic. A sea breeze this afternoon will knock temperatures back along the coastline after reaching the 70s during the early afternoon. This means it will feel a bit cool at the water if you are headed to the beaches. Inland areas will be warmest each and every day through Sunday with 80s commonplace. The warmest readings will be in southern New Hampshire and the Merrimack Valley, but MetroWest will also be quite warm.

Sunday is the hotter of the next three days with 90 degrees common over the interior, but 80 a better average at the coastline. There will be a southerly wind and a bit more humidity in the air although I wouldn’t consider it humid or even close to oppressive.

There is still zero chance of rain over the next several days as the showers and thunderstorms remain south and west of the area.

If you are headed to the beaches, remember this is the first weekend with everyone out of school and travel patterns in full summer mode. You’ll want to arrive early and bring lots of sunscreen. Have a great weekend!

Today: Mainly sunny, highs in the mid-70s at the coast, lower 80s inland.

Tonight: Clear and comfortable. Lows 54-64, warmest in Boston.

Saturday: Mostly sunny and warm. Highs 81-86. Warmest inland, cooler 70s on Cape Cod.

Sunday: Sunny and warm. Highs 82-90, warmest in the Merrimack Valley.

Monday: Very warm and humid highs 80-90.

Tuesday: Slight chance of showers. Humid.
