Today's Weather: After A Wet Morning, Make Way For Sunshine — And High Winds

Conditions will change rapidly around the Boston area Wednesday morning, with rain and even some wet snow coming to an end.

A large storm system to our east will continue to move up into Canada. As this system pulls away, clearing will take place and the winds will pick up.

There is a wind advisory posted for much of the area today. Gusts could read 45 miles an hour at the highest later this afternoon, but don't expect widespread damage or power outages, as it won't be quite that strong. Winds will be strongest over northern areas and into New Hampshire.

Winds will be gusty later Wednesday. (Dave Epstein/Model Data)

Tomorrow is a seasonable day with temperatures right around 50 degrees and plenty of sunshine. There's another system which is going to bring some showers Friday night into Saturday. The rain should end early enough Saturday to salvage much of the day.

Sunday starts dry with a blend of clouds and sunshine, but the clouds should increase during the afternoon. There's another weather system, which will bring showers for Sunday night or Monday. This is a slow-moving system and will keep showers in the forecast through Tuesday.

Temperatures will be seasonable, but with the lack of sunshine and the wet weather, it's going to feel rather raw.

There's a saying about April showers and this year may prove that we get plenty of them — at least over the next week. I also don't see a lot of very warm weather. This is a good time to over-seed your lawn and put down some organic fertilizer, as it will get worked into the soil easily.
