After one of the warmest Easter Sundays on record, today will feature more sunshine and readings that are still very warm, though not quite as hot as Sunday.
The cooling trend will continue tonight and Tuesday, with some much-needed wet weather coming toward the end of the week.
High pressure from Canada will control our weather today. There is still enough warm air left — despite a cold front that crossed the region overnight — that temperatures will reach into the lower 70s. That's nearly 20 degrees above average.
Yesterday was 24 degrees above average, with a high of 86 and just shy of the record of 87.
If you are running or watching the Boston Marathon, expect very warm conditions. Use plenty of sunscreen and stay hydrated today.
Another cold front comes through tonight. But, this front will turn the air much cooler. If you thought you needed air conditioning yesterday, you'll need the heat Tuesday as highs will stay under 50 degrees. Keep your windows closed tonight and some of the days heating will remain in the house.
Low pressure brings clouds and some rain or showers to the region to close out the week, but as of now, the weekend should see conditions improve. Let's hope we get some significant rainfall before then.
