ZACK GREEN: We do have mild temperatures out there this morning, and we've been in a mild track for the entire month of April so far. We have had five of the last seven days get above average, and we will have plenty more red boxes on the way this afternoon, Friday, Saturday. Sunday, we will start to slip, but we're still likely going to land above the seasonal average of 53 degrees. And by the way, that's an afternoon average.

We're starting the day at 54 degrees in the city of Boston. 51 right now in Lawrence, very comfortable and mild when you step out the door for this time of year. Into the mid and upper 40s for nearly everyone else, with the cooler spots sitting at 44 degrees right now out towards New Bedford. There's some clouds in place for the moment, but we'll start to see those disperse and thin out closer to lunch time.

And through the afternoon hours, we're holding onto plenty of sun, and that's obviously going to allow those temperatures to respond. There is going to be an onshore breeze once again, the exact same trend we've had all week. So interior locations will be our warmest spot, and we'll carry that into the end of the week as well.

A little hint of fog expected for Friday morning, especially around Buzzards Bay. So we look to the Cape as well as the islands, maybe the southern tier of 495 and maybe 195 to get some reduced visibility around this time tomorrow. And once again, that's going to be out of our way pretty quickly and the sun is going to take hold for the afternoon, and we'll get a huge boost in temperatures.

So today, we're expecting to have the low and mid 60s for those in Worcester County, we think from the 495, Middlesex County, north of the pike. But even Boston has a chance of seeing the low 60s, too. We'll cool things off with that easterly wind component down to the low and mid 50s for eastern Plymouth County and those east of Buzzards Bay.

Tomorrow, we're expecting to be well above average-- in the 70s are probably checked off. For those areas farther west, we won't be far from it in the North Shore, and trying to get up into the Merrimack Valley. By the time you reach the seacoast of New Hampshire, there's still that marine influence, which will sort of rival what we have for the Cape as well as the islands. But a comfortable and bright way to wrap up our week.

And the warm air wants to hold on for the first half of the weekend, then we'll be tracking in this next wave of low pressure. And that will not only drop our temperatures, but bring us some beneficial rain. And we do need the showers at this point. We're starting to get a little wavering closer to that deficit not only after a bone dry March, but also now in the month of April.

So not much expected through Saturday or even Sunday morning. If you do have golf plans or tee times early on, I think we'll be able to hit a full round. By the time we go into the afternoon, we'll start to spill in more of those showers. And again, we do need it. We're in abnormally dry conditions from the Massachusetts drought monitor, which updates every Thursday at 8:00 AM. So we'll have the new information on that later today and through tomorrow morning. Bright skies right through the end of the week. 70 is going to hold through Saturday for--
