Forecast: Chilly Early, But Around 60 In The Afternoon

Today sees a chilly morning, which means you will need a light jacket for a couple of hours before temperatures rise into the 50s and eventually near 60 degrees by around lunchtime. The winds of Wednesday have diminished, and we won’t see quite the brisk conditions we saw yesterday, although winds won’t be calm. You can once again expect to see wall-to-wall sunshine. There will be a bit of sea breeze, so the warmest air is in areas southwest of Boston and also in southern New Hampshire.

There will be some more clouds Friday, and there is the chance of a morning shower. Highs will reach the upper 50s to near 60, and with the lack of sunshine, it will feel cooler. The commutes to and from work the rest of the week will remain unaffected by weather.

The winds return somewhat for Saturday as a weak front pushes through. The bulk of the energy will remain to our north, but I can’t rule out a quick shower. Look for highs in the upper 60s to near 70.

Another beauty comes our way Sunday with dry and seasonably mild air.

Monday is a holiday, and of course, the big road race from Hopkinton to Boston is that day. Heat won’t be an issue and with clouds increasing and thickening, it will feel cool. There will be a bit of a head wind for the runners, but it should remain dry at least for the elite runners who go first. Later in the afternoon, rain will overspread the area, and the rain will likely last on and off into Tuesday.

Today: Sunny, with a high near in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Tonight: Increasing clouds, with a low 40-45. Southwest wind around 7 mph.

Friday: Lots of clouds a quick mid-morning shower. Highs near 60.

Saturday: Lots of sunshine with a midday shower possible. Breezy and warm. Highs 65-70.

Sunday: Sunny, with a high 55-60.

Monday: Becoming cloudy with afternoon rain. Cooler. Highs 52-56.
