Weekly Outlook: April 3-9, 2023

As is typical of April, this week will be cool, warm, wet, and dry. Let’s get into the details.

High pressure slides offshore today, allowing milder weather to move back in on gusty south to southwest winds. A frontal system will drop southward later in the day, bringing some clouds in, along with a few showers at night, mainly north of the Mass Pike. That front will continue to slowly drift southward during the day on Tuesday, with some additional showers possible. South of the front, temperatures will be in the mild side, possibly well into the 60s, on Tuesday, but to the north of it, it will be much cooler, with temperatures only in the 50s, perhaps upper 40s. With the front expected to stall out south of the region, Wednesday looks chilly and somewhat damp thanks to east winds off the still-cool Atlantic.

The models don’t agree on how quickly the front drops southward on Tuesday, which has a significant impact on temperatures from north to south across the region. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.

That front will lift northward again as a warm front Wednesday night, setting up a rather warm day on Thursday. Despite plenty of clouds, temperatures will get well into the 60s, likely topping 70 in some spots. If we can get any sunshine, temperatures could get well into the 70s across the region. The warm air won’t hang around long though, as a cold front moves through late in the day with some showers and possibly thunderstorms. High pressure builds in for Friday and the weekend with dry weather. Temperatures will be cooler on Friday and Saturday, but should moderate on Sunday.
