Weather -- Play Ball


Play Ball

Staff Meteorologist

For the Red Sox opener at Fenway Park this afternoon, Mother Nature will play ball, allowing for fair skies and almost spring-like temperatures.

An arctic high, responsible for record cold weather over the eastern half of the United States, will slowly move eastward, as another large storm tracks from Oklahoma towards the Great Lakes. As a result, once again, spring will be put on hold for several days in the Northeast. Cold rains will arrive for the weekend and a possible secondary low, developing early Sunday will keep the unsettled and chilly weather around. The outlook is for chilly weather to remain around well into next week. Alas, spring in New England is just like the pennant hopes for the Red Sox fans: maybe this year, then again - maybe not!

Today: Mostly sunny with some high clouds moving in. High 52F (11C). Moderate northwesterly winds.

Tonight: Becoming cloudy.Winds diminishing. Low 38F (4C).

Saturday: Cloudy with showers moving in from the west. Cool high of 48F (9C), winds turning onshore.

Sunday outlook: Continued unsettled, turning colder late. Highs in the mid to upper 40s (79C), lows in the upper 30s (34C).
