Easter Weekend brings clear, warm weather

If you are taking to the highways to go visit friends and family this Easter Weekend there are some weather concerns to be aware of. More rain is possible again by next weekend.

SATURDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy skies develop, with a cool high temperature of 60 degrees. The beginning of next week will see cooler daytime highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Easter Sunday afternoon will be partly to mostly cloudy, with a chilly high temperature of 49 degrees. High: Mid-upper 40s. Wednesday night will be mostly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of showers. Severe weather does not appear likely with this system. SPC has outlined a risk area for Day 4. Drizzles are due mid-morning in Greater Boston to be followed by showers - there's a 70 percent chance for rain, forecasters wrote. Expect to climb into the 60s today, but also expect a breezy day. High: mid-upper 50s.

We're tracking a calm morning, but we're dealing with cold and potentially icy conditions. The rain will stick with us through the rest of the afternoon and evening. Monday and Tuesday look to be our milder days with highs in the mid 70s! Temperatures for sunrise services Sunday will be in the low 50°s. In addition to the rain, a strong to severe storm can not be ruled out.

Former Expos great Rusty Staub dead at 73
One of the best contact hitters of his time, Staub struck out just 888 times in 9,720 at-bats and drew 1,255 walks. Staub was drafted by the Houston Colt.45's as a 17-year-old in 1961, and he played the 1962 season with the Bulls.

As it turns out, April snow is not rare, but is uncommon.

Once the front passes through surface winds should drop off down to 5 to 15 miles per hour by morning.
