Boston Weather: 46.0°F | A Few Clouds

Weather: April Thor


April Thor

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

An unsettled atmosphere brings with it strong winds and a good chance of rain or thunderstorms. Tomorrow and Thursday will bring some clearing, ahead of a tempestuous-looking weekend.

Behind a weak warm front which passed through last night, brisk winds from the south will pull up plenty of moisture. Lifting of the air by the cold front in addition to the heating from any sun that makes its way through gives the likelihood of isolated thunderstorms. Otherwise there is a good chance of scattered light rain throughout the day. By evening, strengthening winds herald the cold front and a drop in temperatures. Rain is likely with the majority falling to the north and west where some substantial totals are possible. The drier air behind the cold front will bring sunnier skies for tomorrow. Thursday may well see the return of clouds again ahead of the warmer air pushing back northward.

Today: Some sun early, then cloudy. Strong winds (912 kph; 15-20 mph) from the south and west. Chance of a thunderstorm, especially in the afternoon and west. Scattered showers. High 72F (22C).

Tonight: Continued likelihood of rain; windy. Low 45F (7C).

Wednesday: Mostly sunny. Strong winds from north and west. High 63F (17C). Low 40F (5C).

Thursday: Mostly sunny, clouds developing late. High 60F (15C). Low 44F (7C).
