Boston Weather: 36.0°F | Partly Cloudy

Weather: GREP Spring

By Cegeon J. Chan
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- Where is spring? It was 86°F on Monday then 60°F on Wednesday, back to 80°F yesterday and mid 40s°F for today. It seems Mother Nature just can’t make up her mind! Here in New England, high temperatures from one day to the next can drop 30 degrees. Today is one of those days. We are under the influence of a slow-moving cold front, and this will cause rain showers until the early part of the afternoon and cloudy skies for the rest of the day. On top of that, with a brisk breeze from the ocean, temperatures will not increase all that much, with highs only reaching 49°F today.

However, the sun will come out just in time for any outdoor Spring Weekend activities. Saturday and Sunday will be winners! Although some may find it on the cool side, expect plenty of sunshine and spring-like temperatures for the weekend. So after today, hope you get a chance to get outside and enjoy!
