Hoping for a spring weekend to get your boat back in the water? Or try out your your stand-up paddleboard?

Temperatures will finally warm up to the 60s, but you still need to wear a wet suit, since water temperatures are in the upper 30s. Friday could be great for surfers, as gusty winds will create small waves, but overnight some rain could move in.

The rest of the weekend is a no-go. Widespread rain and thunderstorms are likely with very gusty winds.

And by Mondays, temperatures will drop back to the 40s.
