Boston, Today Is A Beautiful Day. Here's What The Rest Of Memorial Day Weekend Looks Like

This article is more than 1 year old.

It's going to be a beautiful day for your Friday, with lots of sunshine and temperatures into the 80s to around 90. The good news is that there won't be a lot of humidity and there will be a bit of a breeze from the west keeping it feeling a little less hot.

Overnight the humidity will creep up and Saturday is a bit more uncomfortable, with temperatures once again in the 80s to around 90. I do expect there to be a line of showers and thunderstorms trying to push south in the evening. but whether or not you see one is still questionable as many of us will just miss all of this completely.

Friday and Saturday are both good beach days.

A frontal system will usher in much cooler air for Sunday. There will also be a lot of clouds, with a chance of scattered showers. Temperatures will only be in the 50s to low 60s, making it feel rather chilly, especially compared to the previous two days.

Memorial Day itself is not really going to be that bad, with temperatures approaching 70 degrees, with a lot of clouds but a little bit of sunshine. I don't expect any rainfall for Monday and it will be a good day to have a barbecue.

Next week, temperatures look to once again surge to summer-like levels. It's important to remember that these readings are very anomalous and much warmer than we should be this time of the year.
