BOSTON (WHDH) - It took what seemed like forever, but the pattern broke, and that means we’re back to more typical May weather.  Finally!

Despite running 8 days straight of measurable rain, it wasn’t an overwhelming rain.  In Boston, the 8 day total amounted to just 1.33″ of water. The gray skies and onshore winds were stubborn though, holding temps in the 40s and 50s through the first week of May. Yuck.

This week, the numbers are full of 60s and 70s!  Wahoo!  Other than a few spotty sprinkles this morning, we’re dry through much of the workweek.  That means the ball fields dry out, baseball and softball games get in this week and tee times should get off just fine.  Although, a few courses may have a frost delay tomorrow as inland temps start off in the low to mid 30s.  I’m not expecting a hard freeze, but patchy frost is possible. The rebound after the cool start tomorrow is a thing of beauty with highs near or just shy of 70 in the afternoon.

By late Friday and Friday night, the chance for widespread showers does go back up.  While I do expect scattered showers over the weekend, we’ll likely get our dry stretches in there as well.   We’ll pin down that forecast as we get closer, but for now, enjoy the nicer weather.
