Heading to the beaches this weekend for Memorial Day? Check out the all-important weather forecast here.

Some changes have been starting to take place in the weekend beach forecast. Overall it still looks like it will be nice for the Delmarva Beaches down to Virginia Beach. There are questions though as a new system has developed just to the east of Florida which may become another tropical system. This could really put a big question mark for the forecast for the Outer Banks and the Southeast. Here are our latest thoughts.

Saturday & Sunday Beach Forecast

Saturday and Sunday look nice if you are heading to the Eastern Shore and north to the beaches in new Jersey. There you can expect temperatures in the mid 70s with plenty of sunshine. It is the Outer Banks with the big concern as that low moves up the east coast. That area may see the chance for showers and thunderstorms along with some breezy winds out of the east and some bigger surf.

Memorial Day beach Forecast

Memorial Day Monday at this point appears to see more of the same as far as the northern beaches for temperatures but also includes the slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm. At this point it looks more along the lines of a 30% chance. The low east of Florida will still be a big question mark come Monday but as of now we are keeping in the chance for a few storms with highs in the mid to upper 70s. Winds may still be on the breezy side and some high surf will continue to be possible.

Important Note: Wear sunscreen!!! I know you may think the sun isn't quite as strong as it's not even summer yet, but just ask my girlfriend who got fried at Bethany last weekend (cough, cough told you so...). Here's a good article on best sunscreens and sunscreens to avoid.
