Cool Pattern Prevails

Temperatures start this morning near freezing, if not below it, in many towns outside the city.  At least we also start the day with quite a bit of sunshine, and I do expect temperatures today to be a few degrees warmer than the past couple of days.  It’ll still be cool overall and it’ll still be breezy, but generally not a bad weekend. 

With the cold air aloft, clouds tend to build and mix in with that sunshine by midday, with even the risk of a stray sprinkle late this afternoon for a few of us.  A slightly higher chance for a passing sprinkle or brief shower slides in tomorrow, although much of the day still remains dry.  Winds are lighter on Sunday, but do turn onshore, meaning coastal towns hold near 50 while inland towns warm into the upper 50s.

Monday, Monday night and early Tuesday features a better chance of a few showers before we transition to a drier pattern by late Tuesday afternoon.  Dry weather should prevail from then, through the end of the week. 

We do have to track an ocean storm to our south late next week, but as of now, it appears that’ll stay south of us. It does help keep the winds onshore with temps in the 50s at the coast, while we’re in the 60s inland. 

We still haven’t hit 70 in Boston this year, and it looks like we won’t through the end of the month.  Do I see any 70s or 80s ahead for the city?  Well, it’s a long way out, but I wouldn’t be surprised to get there around May 4th, or 5th as any brief break in an overall coolish pattern can send temps dramatically north this time of year.
