Forecast: Seasonable Weather This Week

Generally we're looking at a very nice week ahead — at least the working part of it. There may be some unsettled weather toward the weekend, but it's early enough that the forecast could change. High pressure remains in control much of this week with quiet weather and not much in the way of precipitation.

Temperatures will be coolest along the coast with a brisk wind at times. As you move inland west of Route 128 and especially I-495, temperatures will be as much as 10 to 15 degrees above those readings right along the North Shore as well as portions of Cape Cod.

Average temperatures this time of the year are typically in the mid-60s. This week will be pretty close to that although the warmer inland spots will exceed it. The past four months we've seen above-normal precipitation, so although this is a fairly dry week, I'm not concerned yet as to the lack of moisture.

There will be a divide between summertime heat and cooler springtime temperatures later this week and this will get quite close to New England. Depending on which side of that boundary Greater Boston ends up will determine just how cool or warm we are this weekend and whether or not we see scattered showers.
