BOSTON – Memorial Day is always a toss-up in the New England, but our beautiful weather trend continues on Monday.

This may be the unofficial start to Summer ,but Monday certainly has more of that spring touch.

Winds have shifted onshore and will be rather gusty. Peak gusts will likely reach 30+ mph by midafternoon.

With the northeasterly influence, that may allow temperatures to fall a degree or two after lunchtime.

Further inland temperatures will climb to near 70 degrees. Still great grilling weather and perfect for parades across the region.

We're in for another warmup mid-late week. On Wednesday, temperatures start to jump back into the 80s and we could hit 90 degrees both Thursday and Friday, depending on the timing of a cold front late Friday.

The forecast remains mainly dry as well with just the chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm late Friday.

Until then, dry and mostly sunny with temperatures on the rise as we head into the month of June.

Last but not least: The National Weather Service came out with their Atlantic hurricane forecast for 2023 Thursday morning. A near to slightly below average season is expected.
