Locally Strong Thunderstorms Clear by Marathon Start

The heaviest rain should exit by 9 a.m. Most of the Marathon will be dry.

It’s been a busy weekend of weather across the country. Deadly tornadoes and heavy snow have wreaked havoc in the Midwest, and it's all been part of the same monster storm system.

As thunderstorms organize through the rest of our Sunday evening, they will being to march east into New England. Strong thunderstorms are possible overnight.

South of the warm front, some of those storms could miss down powerful winds. The current thinking is that the warm front will make it to Route 2. South of the front, temperatures will jump into the 60s, to the north they will stay in the 40s and low 50s.

The heaviest rain should exit by 9 a.m. Most of the Marathon will be dry. However, if you’re running the race and getting to Hopkinton early, prepare for locally heavy rain and thunderstorms. Another round of showers and thunderstorms are possible Monday afternoon.

Tuesday and Wednesday are seasonably pleasant with sunshine. Any wet weather should hold off until Thursday.

As rain chances increase at the end of the week, the temperatures will also moderate. High temperatures may reach the upper 60s and low 70s by Friday and Saturday. Unfortunately, the unsettled weather will stick around through Easter Sunday. It’s still too early to tell if it will be a wash out.

The following week looks seasonable with occasional showers – typical weather for the second half of April. Enjoy!
