Valley Regional Weather Summary
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!
