Today's Weather: A Sunny, Windy Start To The Week

This article is more than 1 year old.

The combination of a storm in eastern Canada and high pressure moving toward us from the Great Lakes will cause windy conditions in the Boston area through Tuesday. The good news is that along with the stiff westerly breeze, we’ll have lots of sunshine and temperatures about where they should be this time of year.

By Wednesday, winds will become light and temperatures will edge back into the 40s.

Although there will be plenty of bright March sunshine during the day, clouds will increase rapidly Wednesday evening, with the chance for a rain or snow shower in a few towns at night, as a warm front moves slowly northeastward.

The end of the week will feature the mildest air but with a heightened risk for showers with mostly cloudy skies.

The long-range models keep the storm track similar over the next couple weeks. This mean generally quiet weather here in southern New England with no big storms.
