Happy Easter

This Easter Sunday is starting rather nippy in the lower to middle 30s for sunrise services. Sunshine should rule during the day although some wispy cloudiness may be around at times with perhaps a few scattered low clouds drifting in from the ocean down over Cape Cod and a few other places over southeastern MA.
