Forecast: Seasonable Temps. And Plenty Of Sunshine

As the sun came up just before 6:30 this morning, temperatures in the Boston area reached their lows for the morning.

Today is a bright day with plenty of sunshine as high pressure takes hold. You might have seen a few showers yesterday, but there was no significant rain to help with our now multi-year drought.

Winds this afternoon will turn to the west, helping to boost temperatures almost exactly where they should be this time of year, in the lower 50s.

On Friday, a strong cold will pass the region. This front will leave the area in a cold air mass, and you will definitely notice the chill. The winds will also pick up as the front passes. I expect temperatures to peak in the late morning or early afternoon before the front. As winds increase, temperatures will fall.

If you are headed out Friday evening, plan on wearing winter clothes.

Saturday is chilly, but not unusually so. I expect to see temperatures in the 40s during the afternoon along with a brisk, but not strong wind.

We begin the warm-up on Sunday with temperatures back in the 50s. This day is not to be outdone by Monday, which arrives with a predicted high temperature getting in the 60s.
