Warming Trend?

After a high yesterday of 56 in Boston, today only managed to low to mid 40's with a strong sea breeze and cloudcover. Over Worcester County, there were even a few sprinkles and those sprinkles may turn to snow flurries overnight as temperatures cool through the 30's in western Massachusetts. Tomorrow will start out with a mainly overcast sky with some breaks in the clouds for a few peeks of sun. If you are tired of this boring cool and raw weather, your luck may be changing. It now looks like there will be a pattern change early next week to a ridge in the East. Highs should respond nicely, but do not expect temperatures to soar much above 50-55 in the next several days.

Quick Look at the 5 Day Forecast
Mostly cloudy day with a few PM breaks in the clouds. Temperatures will remain raw with an onshore flow keeping in the Atlantic cool air. Highs generally 39-43 at the coast, including Boston, to 44-48 inland, anywhere several miles inland away from the influences of the water.
Last of the real cool days. Morning starts out very raw with a few Cape sprinkles. Temperatures for early risers look to be in the lower to middle 30's. Expect temperatures to rebound nicely, except on the coast. Coastal highs of 40-44; inland highs in the upper 40's to around 50. Overnight skies will generally become clear and temperatures overnight Sunday will be seasonable in the upper 20's to lower 30's.
More sun than clouds and warmer. A light sea breeze may set up for areas of Cape Ann, Boston, and the Cape, where if it does expect temperatures in the lower to middle 40's. Otherwise, all other areas will see highs generally rebound to 50-56 with the warm late March sun.
Most sun in the morning then increasing clouds later in the day towards the afternoon. Expect highs in the upper 40's and the possibility of rain showers later at night which may continue as snow showers in the mountains on Wednesday morning.
Clearing and back to tranquil weather. Turning mostly sunny and with the warm and high nearly April sun angle, temperatures will soar to 55-62 areawide, except coastal areas where a sea breeze may cap temperatures around 45. Otherwise, it looks like this will be the beginning of a prolonged warm spell, seasonable warmth at least.
