Mix of sunshine and spring showers continue this week – NBC Boston

It’s been a very busy week. The WooSox home opener, the Red Sox home opener, Passover, Easter and then the Marathon. Unfortunately, the weather model isn’t very consistent either; showers one day, heat the other, cool and cloudy days mixed with sunshine.

If today is any hint of what’s to come, it’ll be a fun ride. We go from cool morning rain to bright sunshine and nearly 70 in the late afternoon. It’s a stellar finish to a fairly lackluster start.

This bodes well for the WooSox at 3 p.m. – the brightest and hottest part of the day. It also works for late afternoon tee times and a simple walk outside to lift your spirits.

We are still in the soft grips of this model tomorrow. Sun will mix with clouds as summits climb back into the upper 60s to near 70s. Clouds will take over late in the day as a weather system approaches, but we should stay dry until nightfall.

Thursday is tricky. A frontal border should cut southern New England in half, keeping the western part of the Commonwealth warm, while the eastern part relaxes. The showers come to us at the end of the day.

Friday fades away for the Red Sox home opener, then we wait for the weekend predictions. It looks like another split (imagine that): Saturday is milder and Sunday is cooler.

A big storm is looming for late Monday and all day Tuesday. At this point, it looks like the marathon will fend off the rain until later in the afternoon, but (obviously) timing the precipitation that far is tricky at best. Lots of updates to come in the days to come.
