Forecast: Strong April Sunshine Expected On Marathon Monday

This article is more than 5 years old.

Day three of a sunny holiday weekend is underway after a cold start. Temperatures early this morning were in the lower 30s with another frost for a lot of folks.

Strong April sunshine will help to boost temperatures into the upper 60s inland. Along the coast this afternoon a sea breeze will hold those highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.  Residents along coastal roads could see readings fall 5 to 10 degrees as winds turn easterly bringing back a bit of a chill.

If you are running or watching, the biggest issue will be the strength of the sun. After a long winter, there will be some sunburned folks by the end of the day.

Overnight it will be clear and not as cold as the past few nights. As a cold front approaches the region on Tuesday clouds will increase although the first half of the day looks to be mostly sunny. Showers are likely overnight and a few front-running rain drops could occur over western areas before sunset.

Any rain is over by Wednesday morning with a return to a blend of clouds and sunshine for the balance of the day. It will be cooler from the middle of the week through Fridaywith highs mostly in the 50s. It will turn milder later Friday with highs nearing the lower 60s.

We may see some more April showers to start the weekend, but at the present time Saturday doesn’t look like a washout.

Monday: Sunny with highs in the upper 60s inland but upper 50s along south- and east-facing coastal areas.

Monday night: Partly cloudy and not as cold. Lows in the lower 40s.

Tuesday: A blend of clouds and sunshine. Mild with a chance of late-day showers. Highs of 65 to 70.

Tuesday night: Showers likely, especially before midnight. Lows in the 40s.

Wednesday: Partly sunny and cooler. Highs of 54 to 58.

Thursday: Sunny with a high of 55 to 60.

Friday: Mostly sunny with a high near 56 to 62.
