Gloomy Start to the Week

7Weather-We keep the clouds around to kick off the week, and temperatures gradually go back to normal, April highs.

Temperatures drop between 39-44º tonight, and then we start the day tomorrow with temperatures in the mid and upper 40s. With a breezy onshore wind all day, we don’t go up much from there. Highs will be between 45-50º. There could also be spotty showers throughout the day. A hoodie with a light rain jacket on top will do for Monday.

There will be peeks of sun on Tuesday. This allows highs to jump into the mid and upper 50s inland. An onshore wind will keep the coast cooler in the low 50s.

Wednesday has lots of clouds around, and once again there could be a spot shower in the afternoon. Highs are in the mid 50s inland, and near 50º at the coast.

We could really use a good, soaking rain. Since March 1st, Boston has only seen 2.81″ or rain, putting us about 3.00″ below average. Worcester has seen less than that, putting the city about 3.50″ below average.

The “spot showers” you see on the 7-day won’t amount to much. If we’re lucky we will accumulate 0.10-0.20″ from Monday- Thursday. The better chance to get about 1.00″ of rain will be on late Thursday night – Friday. Higher elevations might even see a few flakes mixed in with rain.
