Blustery and much cooler on Sunday

Saturday was an absolute treat with sunshine and highs in the 60s. The weather was perfect for outdoor activities including the Red Sox duck boat parade in Boston. Unfortunately, Sunday is not going to be nearly as nice. A strong cold front will move through Saturday night. The wind will shift to the north, and a few passing showers are possible after midnight. The best chance of rain is in Eastern MA where the shower threat lingers through Sunday morning. Elsewhere, it will become partly to mostly cloudy, with the temperature falling into the low 40s by early Sunday morning. Don’t forget to set your clocks back tonight as Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 am Sunday. If you’re up early on Sunday morning, you will have a chance to see a partial solar eclipse at sunrise.
