Happy Easter!  I hope the Easter egg hunts went well this morning, and the kiddos saved plenty of room for their Easter dinner.  I know those chocolate bunnies, jelly beans and peeps can be awfully tempting for the little ones. Weather-wise, no problems here, lots of sunshine the next couple of days.

As high pressure builds over us and just east of us this Easter Sunday, plenty of sunshine prevails.  However, it’ll be a cooler day with upper 50s inland and upper 40s at the coast.  It’s coolest at the coast thanks to an onshore breeze that’ll take over.  At least this time, we can keep the sunshine at the coast, so that’ll still allow for a pretty nice day overall.  Inland, despite it being cooler than Saturday by a few degrees, the difference is subtle thanks to a much lighter breeze.

Marathon Monday features more nice weather as we start off in the 30s around sunrise, warm to near 50 by 10:00AM and in the lower to middle 60s by mid afternoon.  There’s still some question of how far inland a sea breeze makes in Monday afternoon.  At this point, I don’t think it makes it very far.  The wind will predominately be out of the south to southwest around 10-15mph which has a right to left component and a tail wind component to it (basically from your back right, to your front left if you’re running along the route).  IF a sea breeze makes it to Boston, maybe we’ll cool into the 50s at the finish line, but I doubt it makes it to Brookline or anywhere west of there.  That’s a big IF… in fact, most likely we’ll be in the 60s in the early afternoon at the finish line with that sea breeze hung up in East Boston, up through Nahant, Cape Ann and of course cooler over Cape Cod.

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.

Enjoy the rest weekend and Happy Easter!  #BostonStrong
