Temperatures will be below average with readings in the 40s most of the day. The average high for this time of year in Boston is 55.
Due to the rain, many outdoor events have been cancelled or postponed. A low pressure center and warm front moving through the region will keep showers and even a few thunderstorms passing through Boston most of the day.
