Today's Weather: More Clouds This Afternoon, Only Slight Risk Of Shower

The sunshine was out yesterday and it gave us a nice break from the previous day's rain and snow. Earlier, it looked like a coastal storm would affect us today, but now it appears that most of the precipitation will stay south of New England. This means while there will be more cloud cover this afternoon, I'm not expecting much, if any, rain.

Showers will most likely be south of Boston toward Cape Cod and the islands. Even across Southeastern Mass., I'm not expecting much in the way of precipitation. In other words, this is a non-event.

Things continue to be dry and seasonably cool (or mild, depending on your perspective) for Thursday and Friday. The start of the weekend looks pretty good, with plenty of sunshine on Saturday and comfortable spring temperatures. On Sunday, another system will approach and with it comes a good chance for rain. This means if you want to get outside this weekend, Saturday is your best bet.
