It's that time of year again. Thousands upon thousands heading for the Delmarva Beaches. Here's the all-important weather forecast.

It's time to start heading to the beaches again! I hope everyone has lined up their list of back roads for the Eastern Shore or is planning to leave at Midnight to avoid the 5 hour trip time. Regardless, it's the beach, it's worth it. Will the weather cooperate though? Here's a look at the Memorial Day Weekend forecast on the Eastern Shore.

Saturday:

Partly Sunny, Windy and Cool

Temperatures: Mid 60s  Winds: NW 10-20 Gusts to 35 m.p.h.

Another day forward in the forecast and conditions seemed to have improved as far as rain and clouds but still poor as far as temperatures and winds. I don't think this will be a beach day with wind gusts to 35 mph and sustained winds around 10 to 20 mph. This could lead to blowing sand, rough surf and plenty of that beautiful sea foam! Temperatures will only reach the mid 60s making it feel even cooler, so have a sweatshirt handy. More sunshine should filter into the region as the day goes on.

Sunday:

Partly Cloudy, Breezy and Cool

Temperatures: Upper 60s  Winds: NW 10-15 m.p.h.

Low pressure will be moving farther off the east coast into the Atlantic, making for improvements along the Eastern Shore. Temperatures will still be cool unfortunately, with highs only in the mid to upper 60s. This will be the case as water temperatures, which have a huge impact on the air temperatures, are only in the mid 60s.

Memorial Day Monday: 

Partly Cloudy and Cool

Temperatures: Around 70  Winds: NW 5-10 m.p.h.

At this point I think Monday will be the best day of the bunch, with plenty of sunshine and slightly milder temperatures. Highs should reach the upper 60s under partly cloudy skies. Clouds look like they will be the upper-level cirrus variety so I would imagine there would be a filtered sunshine. Winds will be light around 5 to 10 mph out of the northwest.
