Dreary conditions will not leave Boston until the calendar flips to April.
Rain and drizzle will keep Boston damp through Monday as a storm system is slow to clear the Northeast coast.
The air will not turn cold enough for snow and/or ice to return to the city. The same cannot be said for the suburbs to the north and west of I-495, where slick spots may develop early Monday morning.
Gusty winds will continue to blow across all of eastern Massachusetts through Monday, creating even less than desirable for those outside and making it difficult to walk with an umbrella.
The combination of the clouds and rain will hold Monday's temperatures to the lower 40s. A high of 50 F is more common in Boston for the last day of March.
Umbrellas and rain gear can finally be left at home on Tuesday as high pressure promotes a dry, partly sunny and seasonable day. Similar conditions are expected for Wednesday.

Heavy rain will raise the risk of flooding across more than a dozen states in the Southeast on Presidents Day to the East Coast on Tuesday.
