Today's Weather: Hold Out for A Sunny Afternoon

Clouds will give way to sunshine Thursday, after a a Wednesday filled with clouds kept things cool in the region. The added solar radiation is also going to bring milder temperatures.

Temperatures will start in the low-to-mid 30s this morning, but will reach the upper 40s to lower 50s this afternoon. With the strong late March sunshine and seasonable temperatures, it will be a nice time to get outside. If you want to start gardening, you can definitely start planting trees or shrubs, and you could also move anything that you might need to give a new home.

On Friday, a weather system will skirt to the south of New England. If we get any showers, they would most likely occur south of the Mass Pike. I think most of us will actually miss the rain, but there will be more in the way of cloud cover.

Saturday is my pick of the next several days. I'm expecting plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the low-to-mid 50s.

A lot of our favorite outdoor parks and recreation areas have restricted access or are completely closed, so you'll have to be creative about getting outside. Just remember to keep 6 feet away from each other.

Sunday is an indoor sort of a day. It might not be raining all day, but I do think that the rain will move into the area pretty quickly. That typical late March weather will continue early next week.
