There are no major changes to the forecast; this weekend still looks like a wild ride on the temperature rollercoaster.
Highs should generally reach the mid to upper 50s from the late morning into the early afternoon. So if you want to get outside in some decent weather, this is your time!
NOTE: Boston will likely be in the 40s for most (if not all) of the Red Sox game if you are heading to the afternoon game; so bring the winter clothes! As a backdoor cold front moves in, chilly breezes will pick up from the northeast and temperatures will fall into the low 50s and then upper 40s by mid afternoon into the evening.
Clouds will also be on the increase and there is a chance of some drizzle, although the best chance of drizzle holds off until tonight.
SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING:
As temperatures continue to tumble into the upper 30s and low 40s, some chilly scattered showers develop and some sleet or freezing rain could be thrown into the mix!
There is a chance of some slick spots on untreated surfaces, although the area of higher concern would be just to our north into locations like Worcester County.
It’s more of the same….chilly wind with rain showers mixed with sleet. It won’t be a washout out as there will be some lulls and much of the precipitation will be light, but it’s not a great day to be outdoors.
IF the high does not reach 42°F (which is possible), we would break the “lowest high temperature” on record for the date of April 15th.
SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY:
The colder air will slowly move out, but ample moisture starts to move in increasing the frequency of the rain showers.
While the showers might be light as runners gather at the starting line early on Monday morning, they will start to pick up with periods of heavy rain (and wind) from the late morning into the afternoon. Winds will be brisk out of the east for a good part of the race; there is still some uncertainty on whether they will be more from the southeast, northeast, or just east.
