After brief round of showers, beautiful weekend in store

This week, Bostonians have been reminded of how nice it is to be above average in something that isn’t snowfall! Since Sunday, we’ve enjoyed daily high temperatures 5–10°F above average and abundant sunshine, with more on the way this weekend.

First, though, we’ll likely have to deal with a little rain, thanks to some showers associated with a cold front approaching from the west. Don’t worry about CPW being a washout, though — any showers should clear out by around lunchtime, leaving plenty of time for outdoor activities in the afternoon. The weekend looks beautiful, with plenty of sunshine and a high in the upper 60s°F and upper 50s°F on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Looking ahead to Marathon Monday, if you’re headed to Copley Square to cheer on runners as they cross the finish line, consider bringing an umbrella — rain, gusty winds, and a high in the low 50s°F all appear likely Monday afternoon.
