Boston Weather: 56.0°F | Partly Cloudy

Another April Weekend

By Efren Gutierrez
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- Unlike the unusual early morning snow flurries we had two days ago, the weather for the weekend will be close to average.

A warm front from the Great Lakes will be moving into the area, increasing temperatures and humidity levels. With this warmer air and higher humidity, light April showers may develop. The warm, moist air mass will control the weather for the rest of the week, with isolated showers remaining a possibility for the whole weekend.

This weekend may be a sign of spring’s arrival in Boston, but do not be fooled into believing temperatures will remain high. Early next week, another cold front will enter the area, bring cloudy and rainy skies for the week. Put off the installation of those air-conditioners until early May, when temperatures often begin to rise significantly.
