SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – It was another nice day and with Memorial Day this weekend everybody is paying close attention to what the weather will be like for their outdoor plans.
Krystal Eagles of North Brookfield said, “It’s very important actually we like to be outside enjoying the weather actually opening the pool this weekend so we’re hoping for nice warm weather to freeze a little bit in the water.
From barbecuing to boating many people are hoping the weather will cooperate.
Allen Duprey of Agawam said, “Obviously I want a nice weekend it aint the end of the world if we don’t but I want to be out on my boat and take some family and friends out and have a busy weekend planned.”
While others plan to take to the road.
Jim Carlson of Chicopee said, “Very important whether you’re going to be doing things outdoors or indoors and if you want to travel a distance or not we’ll probably do traveling you know.”
More than 88 percent of holiday travelers will drive to their destination, a 5.3 percent increase over last year.
And if you do plan on traveling make sure your car is in good working order. Make sure your battery is in good condition, your tires are properly inflated and your windshield wipers are working properly.
