Boston Weather: 70.0°F | Partly Cloudy



April Showers

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

A cold front, approaching from the west during Friday will cause shower activity in our area, and, should sun peek through the clouds inbetween scattered bursts of precipitation, a line of afternoon thunderstorms may come through as well. As the primary low moves to the west and north of us and slows down, a small secondary strom will develop along the frontal boundary and move eastward, exiting into the Gulf of Maine by midday Saturday. Thus, the clearing process will not be complete until early Sunday, when cooler and fair weather returns on a northwesterly flow.

Today: Cloudy with showers and a chance of an afternoon thunderstorm. Highs near 60F (16C) with south-southeasterly winds 1015 mph (1624 kmh).

Tonight: Cloudy with some lingering precipitation moving east. Low 45F (7C) with winds shifting to northwest around midnight.

Saturday: Becoming partly cloudy and cooler with winds becoming northerly. High 56F (13C).

Sunday outlook: Fair and cooler with lows around 42F (5C) and highs touching 60F (16C).
