Sunny and 60s through Patriots Day weekend

Don’t let this gloomy weather fool you. Sunny and warm conditions should arrive this weekend and will stick around at least until the last of the Boston Marathon spectators have left the city, forecasters said.

“This weekend looks fairly nice, with sunny weather and temperatures in the lower 60s,” said National Weather Service meteorologist William Babcock. “We may get some showers Tuesday, but it’s going to miss the Marathon and wait until everyone goes home.”

Cloudy conditions should persist throughout today, with high temperatures cresting at a below-normal 43 degrees. Low temperatures should sink into the upper 30s overnight.


Any remaining clouds should clear out by mid-morning Saturday, bringing sunshine and high temperatures near 61 degrees. Skies should remain clear into the evening as temperatures sink to 38 degrees.

Sunday will be sunny but a bit cooler, with high temperatures only climbing to 49 degrees. Some clouds should arrive in the afternoon before temperatures drop to 40 degrees at night.

Marathon runners should be greeted by sunny skies and high temperatures near 63 degrees Monday. Skies could become cloudy during the evening, with low temperatures sinking into the mid-40s.

“A cold front should arrive Monday, but it’s going to stall near the Canadian border,” Babcock said. “It should push further south Monday night, so we could see some more clouds and some showers by Tuesday afternoon.”
