Good Morning,

It’s another chilly morning, almost as cold as yesterday with temperatures back down into the 20′s! No record cold this morning however. The record for today is 19 degrees. (although it will be close) There may be a bit of frost on the windshield but it will be melting away fast as it will be bright and sunny this morning with just a few clouds mixing later this afternoon. It will still be cool though with highs in the middle 50′s.

Look for a beautiful weekend with a nice stretch of weather including a warming trend that will take us right through the long holiday weekend!    A weak front will pass through late tonight night and may touch off a stray sprinkle or shower. We are not expecting much! Skies will clear late tonight giving way to lots of sunshine tomorrow. It will be breezy and cool but pleasant with highs reaching near 60.

The winds will kick in out of the southwest on Easter Sunday and Patriot’s Day Monday. This will cause temperatures to warm up.  Skies will be mainly sunny for both days too allowing for a fantastic conditions!  A few clouds may mix in during the afternoon however temperatures will be pushing 70!

Our next chance for any significant rainfall looks to be Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday – by then we will need some to keep the pollen and brush fire threat in check.

The Boston Marathon: It will be mostly sunny and pleasant for the runners and spectators.  At the starting line in Hopkinton, temperatures between 9-11 AM will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s, however readings will climb to near 60 as the fastest runners make it to Boston.  Temperatures in Boston should will be a bit tricky. If the winds stay light then there will be a slight sea breeze keeping temperatures mainly in the 50′s at the finish line.  Overall, the weather will cooperate for the runners and the spectators.  Just make sure you have the sunscreen and perhaps the light jacket!

Have a great day!
