While it wasn't a soaking rain, we tracked a few showers through here last night.  Now those showers are well off to our east, and in their wake, mostly sunny skies and a beautiful early Spring day ahead.  While the ground is damp this morning, if the plan is to do yard work, head to the ball field, or even the golf course, we'll make out just fine.  With rainfall totals under a tenth of an inch for most, the grounds aren't waterlogged and the fairways should be void of puddles.  FORE!

With the sunshine in place, temps warm well into the 60s this afternoon.  In fact, away from the coast, we'll near 70.  At the coast, low to mid 60s are a good bet, but those numbers may fall mid to late afternoon as a sea breeze kicks in.  Cape Ann and Cape Cod and Buzzards Bay have the best chance for a cooling sea breeze.

While I do expect a mainly dry weekend, we'll have to watch a warm front slides across New England tonight.  It'll be close enough to throw more clouds in here overnight, and perhaps a shower or two late overnight and early tomorrow across southern New Hampshire.  Clouds Sunday are more prevalent in the morning, especially across northern Mass and southern New Hampshire, but even there, should break for the afternoon.  With an active southwesterly wind temps warm into the upper 60s and lower 70s.  It'll be cooler (50s) across the Cape, and perhaps cooler across the Seacoast of New Hampshire.  Temperature wise, once you cross into the Seacoast of New Hampshire and into southern Maine, it may be considerably colder if the warm front can't snap through and winds stay onshore. 

Monday is the warmest of the next 3 days with a gusty south to southwesterly wind.  Highs Monday will range from the 50s across the Cape, 60s over southern Bristol and southern Plymouth County, 70s along and north of route 44 in SE Mass and near 80 across the Merrimack Valley and southern NH.

Tuesday is mild too... 60s to lower 70s, but showers start to work and and a soaking rain arrives late in the day and at night.  Unfortunately, for those wanting to see the "Blood Moon", I don't think we'll get our chance Tuesday night thanks to the rain and clouds. http://earthsky.org/space/what-is-a-blood-moon-lunar-eclipses-2014-2015

That rain ends early Wednesday, but so does the warmth as even 50 degrees will be a challenge to see both Wednesday and Thursday.

Enjoy the weekend!
