Weekend Outlook: April 15-18, 2022

We’ve got plenty going on this weekend between Opening Day at Fenway, Easter, and Marathon Monday, but the weather should cooperate for the most part.

Patriots Day looks fantastic for both the Marathon and the Red Sox game.

A cold front will move across the region tonight with showers and possibly a rumble of thunder accompanying it. Skies will clear out Friday morning, setting up a fantastic day for baseball at Fenway. For first pitch at 2pm, we should have plenty of sunshine, temperatures around 64, and a southwest wind around 10 mph (blowing out to centerfield). Clouds will start to stream back in late Friday night as another system approaches the region. Saturday will feature plenty of clouds, but most of the shower activity should hold off until late afternoon, so if you have outdoor plans in the morning or early afternoon you should be good. Showers will continue Saturday night, with skies starting to clear out late at night. Easter Sunday should feature plenty of sunshine and cooler temperatures. For Patriots Day on Monday, we’ll have sunshine during the morning, with temperatures in the upper 40s or lower 50s at the starting line in Hopkinton. The runners will have sunshine, temperatures in the 50s, and light southerly winds as they make their way toward Boston. Clouds will start to stream in during the afternoon ahead of yet another system, but any rain from that storm should hold off until after dark.
