Without the strong late March sunshine we never managed to get out of the 40s today…the high in Boston was 48. At times is was a cold, raw 48 degrees too with passing showers as we approached the evening hours. Most of these showers are fueled by the heating of the day and will slowly dissipate later this evening and clouds will break up too during the overnight. The atmosphere will be structured very similar tomorrow and Saturday thus, expect sunshine in the mornings and building clouds with scattered showers in the afternoon. Temps will be a notch warmer over the next few days…in the middle 50s.
The upper level energy responsible for this slightly unsettled stretch will finally move on by the end of the weekend only to be replaced by another storm system moving in from the west by the end of Easter Sunday. Weak low pressure will focus a period of rain over Southern New England Sunday night…no more than a half inch but still a solid soaking that will end very early Monday morning. A large cold pool of air will be spinning in behind the rain but won’t arrive until Monday night, so with a little sunshine on Monday temps should soar to 60 for the first time this season! A coldfront will slide through Monday night with some rain squalls and much colder temps for the middle of the week. There is some question as to how far the front will get, it may stall in our coastal waters…if it’s close enough some rain or snow showers will be possible on Tuesday.
