    Temperatures will continue to struggle to rise around Boston into the end of the week, but a warming trend is in store for Memorial Day weekend.

    Following a fairly seasonable start to the week, clouds and fresh cool air will close out the week on Thursday and Friday.

    Temperatures both days will be held to the 50s as a bit of rain occasionally moves through.

    Baseball fans headed to Fenway Park Thursday afternoon to watch the city's Red Sox finish the series with the Toronto Blue Jays will need both rain gear and jackets.

    While the holiday weekend as a whole will not be rain-free, it will trend drier and warmer.

    A couple of showers will affect the area on Saturday, and a shower or thunderstorm may pass through on Sunday.

    Memorial Day should be the warmest of the three days this weekend with temperatures forecast to reach the middle 70s.

    Current indications are that rain will stay away on Monday for ceremonies, picnics and other outdoor activities.
