Perfect Weather... Not Perfect Timing
Posted by Chris Lambert
When I think mid April in New England, I think of the weather as hit and miss. We get great days... then we get other days that are 48 with drizzle and showers. So you take the good with the bad and really find appreciation for those nice early spring days and usually when I show the next 4 days as being in the 70s and 80s, the response is overwhelmingly positive.
This go around, although many of us enjoy the nice weather, there are a few concerns. Unfortunately for you runners, the peak of this latest burst of warm weather is on Marathon Monday. That means the hydration/heat exhaustion concern will be prevalent as highs soar into the upper 80s. For you spectators too... you need to remember with no leaves on the trees, there's not much shade out there, and with the sun in mid April just as strong as the sun in late August, you'll need plenty of water and plenty of sunscreen. For those not runner, not cheering on the runners, not going to the Sox game, and not working... well, the beach may be the place for you!
Unfortunately, still not much rain in the forecast either.
Enjoy the weekend!
