A beautiful stretch of weather is setting up for the next few days, with a ridge of high pressure building out of eastern Canada. Cool mornings will be replaced by very pleasant afternoons under a nice blend of sun and clouds and high temperatures around or just over 70 for many of us through Friday.

That’s great news for marathon runners on Monday; the early call is for partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the upper 60s (50s in the morning).
