BOSTON - Are you ready for summer? Let's go! We are about to get all those summer feels over the next few days in Massachusetts. 

Average high temperatures this time of year are in the upper 60s. We will top that by 20 or more degrees!

How hot will it get around Boston?

WEDNESDAY: A beach day! Tons of sun and temperatures topping out near 90 degrees to the north and west of Boston.

Same deal to the south ... temperatures a bit cooler, especially down toward the Cape and Islands, mainly in the 60s with the cool ocean breezes.

Rain on Thursday?

THURSDAY: Another very warm day, however, a cold front will be passing through New England in the afternoon and evening.  How warm will we get? It depends on the timing of that front. A passage later in the day would mean another shot at 90 degrees in some areas ... this is currently where we are leaning.

Either way, there will likely be some showers and thunderstorms in the PM, really the only risk of wet weather this week.

Early look at Memorial Day weekend forecast

We are cautiously optimistic that most of the upcoming holiday weekend will remain dry and comfy.

Right now, Friday/Saturday look to be the picks with highs in the 70s.

Temperatures may cool a bit later in the weekend thanks to onshore breezes.

Clouds may also thicken a bit by Memorial Day .. more on this forecast in the days to come.
