Anyone planning to be outside between 4 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday may need to change plans. Be sure to secure all loose items.
After the initial showers tonight and just after midnight on Sunday we should see a break in the action before our first line of thunderstorms moves in. Cooler but less active weather returns for Good Friday and Easter Weekend.
Temperatures should rise into the 70s during the day in many areas, but people on the Cape and Islands will be stuck with the clouds and colder weather, forecasters said. Clouds will likely linger most of the morning.
As for Saturday's Nashville Predators game, we can't rule out a shower around puck drop but overall, we will be dry and cloudy through the game for folks watching in the plaza. Low 40s are on track for Sunday night. We need to be prepared for this event as the potential for nasty storms is much higher than usual. Expect south winds at 5 -15 in the morning and 10 to 20 with gust to 25 miles per hour by the afternoon. Temperatures start off in the upper 50s and could stretch into the low to mid 60s by midday. Cloudy and breezy conditions will continue through the day with chilly temperatures.
