    The unofficial start of summer looks like it will be a boon for shore businesses.

    Abundant sunshine is on tap for today through Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. Today’s breeze will taper off by the weekend.

    High temperatures today will be about 15 to 20 degrees warmer than yesterday. But it will become cooler tomorrow, with temperatures in the 60s at the coast. 

    By Sunday, temperatures will rebound to either side of 70 degrees at the beaches.  

    Clouds will mix in on Memorial Day, with a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms. At the coast, temperatures will remain in the 70s.
