Merrimack Valley Regional Weather Summary

Good afternoon! High pressure remains in control today. Signature cold air damning is preventing us from breaking 50 today. We will remain on the cooler side today and tomorrow. A slight warm-up on Saturday as a weak surface low moves through the area, bringing a chance of showers. The threat is very small, but we can't rule out a spot shower early in the morning. The rest of the weekend looks great, with no precipitation and moderating temperatures as another high pressure system moves into our area and controls our weather. The Easter bunny will have no problem staying dry Sunday delivering goodies to the kids. Those participating in Easter egg hunts in the morning will see temperatures in the low 40's, with a warm-up by the afternoon and temperatures possibly reaching 60. Monday will be similar to Sunday and great for runners participating in the 118th Boston Marathon. As of now it looks like a tailwind for most of the 26.2 miles. However, closer to the city, onshore flow could bring a slight sea breeze causing a head-wind for the last leg of the marathon. For those making a trip to watch the marathon first hand, your UML meteorologists will be stationed along five different locations collecting weather data. We will be relaying the data to the Boston Athletic Association. Be on the lookout for us and come say hello! Have a great day everyone!
