Description

If you're planning on making a long weekend to take part in the activities surround the upcoming running of the 128th Boston Marathon - or if you're running in the main event - it sounds like the weather will cooperate.

After a couple of rainy spring days, we're heading into a drier weekend and nice weather on Monday for the marathon.

"It will be a little breezy on Saturday and Sunday with a blend of sun and clouds before a batch of showers move in Sunday night," according to WCVB Channel 5. "That rain should be exiting first thing on Monday morning before the start of the 128th Boston Marathon."

Meteorologist Frank Nocera of the National Weather Service agreed that the weather should clear ahead of marathon on Monday, April 15.

Monday is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 67 degrees, according to NWS. At the start time of the race, the temperature is expected to be around 50 degrees, reaching that high temperature in the mid afternoon.

"It looks like a relatively dry weekend," Nocera said.

"It'll be milder on Sunday than on Saturday," Nocera said, adding the high temperatures on Saturday will be "in the mid-50s" while Sunday's temperature will be closer to 60 degrees.

He added that "a spot-shower can't be ruled out" on Saturday in the Worcester area and west of there. He said Sunday will "start out dry with a possibility of a shower later that day or overnight."

Nocera said that the weekend weather in Rhode Island will be almost exactly like the forecast for Massachusetts.

"It's pretty much the same thing," Nocera said. "We are looking at a high temperature on Saturday of about 55 degrees and highs on Sunday in the 60s."

"Both days will be mainly dry," Nocera said. "We will have a lot of sun on Sunday morning, with clouds in the afternoon and evening."
