Parading Around Town
Posted by Chris Lambert
We're old pros at this by now, another championship for this city, and what a fantastic season it was on many levels. Today, we wrap up the festivities with the parade around Boston, and the weather turns out just fine for it.
The 10:00AM start features temps in Boston in the upper 50s, reaching the lower 60s by the time the parade ends. The raindrops stay away from the city as just a few morning showers skirt across the Cape and Islands. How about that wind? Not nearly as strong as yesterdays, so overall, it's a comfortable start to the weekend.
A few scattered showers cross the area overnight tonight and linger into Sunday morning. As winds turn to the north, colder air drains into New England, and that means much cooler weather for the second half of the weekend. After a damp start Sunday, we'll dry out late morning, into the afternoon, and that means dry, but cool weather for tailgating and for kickoff at Gillette. Afternoon temps in Foxboro hover in the mid 40s, falling into the 30s by the end of the game. A northerly wind gusting 20-25mph adds a chill to the air.
Cold air settles in for a couple days early next week, before warmer temps arrive Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday night, into Friday morning features the next chance of widespread rain.
Don't forget, clocks go back 1 hour tonight. That means a 6:20AM sunrise and a 4:35PM sunset Sunday! I know, I know... just the messenger here.
Enjoy the weekend, enjoy the parade and go Pats!
