April showers please bring the weekend

The same low pressure system that caused a deadly tornado outbreak in the southeastern United States over this past weekend is responsible for the presence of rain showers in the Boston area this morning. While this storm is not expected to cause severe weather this far north, it will leave clouds and rain hanging around until a cold front sweeps through the area later today. The frontal passage will lead to windy conditions and plummeting temperatures this evening as it ushers in a mass of cold Canadian air. However, the cold spell will be short-lived, as sunshine will return for the end of the week, returning springlike temperatures in time for the upcoming weekend.
