    Fairly typical early April weather is in store for the Boston area through Friday. After a dose of rain Friday night into Saturday morning, the balance of the weekend will be dry.

    The average high for the city this time of the year is around 51 F.

    A damp breeze off the ocean will keep the area chilly on Friday. Temperatures Friday will peak in the 40s for opening day at Fenway Park.


    According to Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson, "The easterly flow setup on Friday is very common for the mid-Atlantic and New England during April into May."

    In addition to low clouds, drizzle and cool air from the Atlantic, remnants of thunderstorms from the Midwest will reach the area in the form of rain Friday night into Saturday morning.

    Dry air is projected to sweep in later Saturday on brisk winds from the west and northwest.

    With the flow from the Atlantic turned off and a lack of polar air coming in to take its place, temperatures will rebound into the 50s both days of the weekend.
