Slow Warm-Up Into The Holiday Weekend

It was a chilly start this morning, and certainly a chilly day overall as an onshore wind prevailed.  With those cold ocean temperatures sitting to our east, any easterly breeze this time of year is a temp killer, and today was no exception.  In fact, with highs running near 40, it was more mid to late February-like vs. mid April.  Tonight is another chilly one too, with temps in the mid 20s in the burbs and low to mid 30s in the city.

So where do where go from here?  It’s a slow go the next 36 hours, but the trend is to the warmer side, and you’ll feel the difference by Saturday afternoon.  To get there, we do have to go through one more cool day though, as an onshore wind prevails on Friday.   With quite a bit of low level moisture in place, we’ll also deal with lots of clouds and even some patchy drizzle in the morning. 

By Saturday, winds turn west, and temps warm into the low 60s as any spotty showers miss us to our north.  As high pressure builds back over us for Easter Sunday, we’ll start off on the chilly side in the morning (30s)  for those early church services, but warm up into the mid to upper 50s inland in the afternoon with sunshine, and near 50 at the coast.  I’m sure at that point, the kids will have chowed down plenty of chocolate bunnies and peeps.

Marathon Monday looks to feature pleasant weather too.  Temperatures start out in the 30s at sunrise and warm into the lower to middle 60s by mid to late afternoon thanks to a southerly breeze that blows from right to left across the Marathon route. 

Tuesday nears 70 before cooler weather and wet weather settles in for Wednesday.
