Forecast: Marvelous Memorial Day Weekend

By Jason Samenow

We welcome day two of the best four-day stretch of weather this season. How nice of it to fall squarely over the holiday weekend! Enjoy all the sunshine and the slow warming trend...


Sensational sunshine. Mid 70s. Cool Canadian high pressure delivers delightfully pleasant air. Enjoy a refreshing breeze (10-15 mph) from the north, blue skies and comfortable temps climbing into the low to mid 70s during the afternoon.

Clear tonight with lows dropping into the chilly mid 40s in the cooler suburbs to the low 50s in town.

Confidence: High

Spectacular sunshine. Upper 70s.If you can imagine a day just like today with less wind and temperatures five degrees warmer, you've got tomorrow. It won't yet feel like summer, but definitely late May-like.

Clear skies once again at night, with milder low temperatures ranging from near 50 in the cooler suburbs to the upper 50s downtown.

Confidence: High


Memorial Day, representing the unofficial start of summer, will be summer-like. We'll have a light southerly breeze, another day of full sunshine and get this: temperatures will finally get over the 80 degree hump (it hasn't been higher than 80 in over two weeks. Highs in most locations will range from 81-85. Confidence: High

The warmth continues Tuesday, but some showers and storms are possible late. Highs should be in the low 80s. Confidence: Medium
