BOSTON A storm skirts by to our south today. The only thing you may notice in the area are a few clouds. The thickest clouds will be on the south side of Cape Cod, but even on the Cape plenty of sunshine will be seen.
Sea breezes keep the coast cool and won’t let temperatures get out of the 40s. Once you move about 10 miles away from the water, the mercury won’t be so affected by the chilly ocean and highs over metro-west will reach the mid and upper 50s this afternoon. It’s not out of the question a few towns like Framingham, Sudbury, and Brockton could nudge 60 for an hour or two.
The clear weather continues overnight with temperatures falling into the lower 30s inland and mid 30s at the coast. A few of the colder spots will see upper 20s for Thursday morning.
More sunshine continues Thursday with highs a few degrees cooler across the board. Opening Day at Fenway Park looks sunny in the morning with some clouds but no rain for the first pitch.
A few hours of rain for late Friday night and Saturday will end and it looks mild later Saturday afternoon. Sunday is certainly the pick of the weekend and the day to plan to be outside.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny with highs in the 40s at the coast and the upper 50s inland.
Wednesday night: Mostly clear with a low of 32 to 38.
Thursday: Sunny and seasonable with highs in the lower 50s.
Friday: Sunny morning with some afternoon clouds. Cool at the coast with highs in the 40s but in the 50s to the west.
Saturday: Rain likely early in the morning. Highs in the upper 50s.
Sunday: Sunny with a high in the range of 50 to 55.
