    A warming trend is in store for the Boston area this Memorial Day weekend, but the daily dose of showers will continue.

    Yet another shower or two will dampen Boston through Sunday, followed by the continued chance for a shower or thunderstorm on Memorial Day.

    A gradual warming trend is in store for the Memorial Day weekend, however.

    Highs on Sunday are forecast to reach near 70 before temperatures soar to the lower 80s on Monday. Humidity will remain low, preventing the holiday weekend from also feeling sticky.

    While much of Memorial Day is likely to be free of rain, there is the risk of spotty thunderstorms in the morning and again late in the day. Exactly how warm it gets on Monday will depend on the amount of sunshine.

    Those heading to the beaches will want to pack the sunscreen. Although warmer air will move into the region, water temperatures remain rather chilly and may be too risky to enter.

    Temperatures will drop back to normal on Tuesday with an even cooler Wednesday likely to unfold.
