With so much going on in the city, on such an important day on so many levels, it was nice to have Mother Nature cooperate with us. Whether you were lined along the Marathon route to cheer on the runners, sitting in the stands at Fenway Park or just outside enjoying the day on a ball field or getting some yard work done, the weather turned out fantastic.
At times this afternoon, the sea breeze wobbled around along the coastline, but even at 3PM, the temperature at Logan Airport stood at 63, showing the sea breeze didn’t have much power to it today. Inland locations hovered in the 65-70 degree range with tons of sun and low humidity through much of the afternoon.
The last time it rained on Marathon Monday was in 2007. 11 out of the last 14 Marathons have featured temperatures in either the 40s or 50s in Boston, so cool weather typically prevails, although we did hit 87 in 2012.
As a spectacular day heads to the finish line, this evening and overnight, we’ll still keep the comfort levels up as lows dip down into the upper 30s in the cooler suburbs to the upper 40s in Boston. Yes, it’s coolish, but not as cold as the past several mornings.
Tuesday, temps take a run at 70 as sunshine fades behind increasing afternoon clouds. Those clouds foreshadow showers that arrive Tuesday night, and even a leftover passing shower or two is possible Wednesday. By Wednesday afternoon, a cooler shot of air heads in here, dropping the numbers back into the upper 50s with a gusty breeze.
