Southern New England will break out of the very cool weather pattern in time for the Easter weekend. Friday featured stubborn clouds and highs in the 40s for the third straight day. It will stay mostly cloudy through Friday night, with lows in the mid to upper 30s. The wind will shift and come out of the northwest on Saturday. That wind direction will help to scour out any low clouds, and it will also warm the temperature into the low to mid 60s during the afternoon.
It will be clear and seasonably cool Saturday night. There will be a nip in the air on Easter morning as the temperature falls into the low to mid 30s with high pressure directly over Southern New England. Some patchy ground fog is possible early in the day. It will be mostly sunny during the day, but not as mild as Saturday. A sea breeze will keep the temperature in the low to mid 50s near the coast, and it will rise to near 60 inland.
The weather looks great on Monday for the Boston Marathon and Red Sox game at Fenway Park. Runners will enjoy temperatures in the 40s to upper 50s from late-morning through mid-afternoon. It will be partly to mostly sunny. In Southeastern New England, the high temperature will be in the low 60s inland, and 50s near the coast under mostly sunny skies.
Clouds will increase on Tuesday, but it looks like it will stay dry through the day. It should be relatively mild, with highs in the low to mid 60s. Once again, the weather will take a turn for the worse in the midweek. Showers or steady rain will move in Tuesday night into Wednesday. It may be rainy and raw with temperatures in the 40s on Wednesday morning.
