It appears as though it will stay well to our north and west during the Marathon, keeping all of Southern New England in the "warm sector."  This means a steady southwest wind, lots of sunshine and abnormally high temperatures.

Detailed Temperature Forecast:

Hopkinton (AM start): 60-64 degrees

Framingham: 70-74 degrees

Wellesley (half way): 72-78 degrees

Newton: 75-80 degrees

Boston (finish): 80-85 degrees…the record for the date is 84 set back in 2003, it may be in jeopardy.


As for the chance of precipitation, it remains low.

However, with a weather boundary in the area we cannot rule out a passing shower or thunderstorm.

These would be few and far between and likely not a major concern for runners.
