Grab an umbrella — a beach umbrella — because perfect sunny days like these don’t come around too often.
“It looks great,” said Jay Engle, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service at Upton. “Lots of sunshine this weekend.”
After a sunny, warm Saturday, temperatures are forecast to be seasonable Saturday night, with lows in the 50s to near 60. Then more sun is expected Sunday, though it's forecast to cool off slightly compared with Saturday, with temperatures in the low- to mid-70s.
Some high clouds are expected to appear later Sunday, Engle said.
“It’s pretty seasonable,” Engle said. “[Saturday is] slightly above normal but mainly we’re right around normal.”
Beachgoers can thank a high-pressure dome from the northwest settling in over the area that Engle said was keeping “unsettled” weather to the south.
All good things must come to an end, however, and on Monday a 50 percent chance of rain may mean a swap of beach umbrellas for the wet variety. A steady rain is expected Monday night and into Tuesday morning, he said.
