“If you stick to what we’re looking at right now, it basically indicates a somewhat favorable forecast,” Frank said.

Again, Frank pointed out that the weather forecast could change by April 8th. Even if the weather is dry, clouds could form and that would not be favorable for viewing, he said.

He also said it was too early to differentiate forecasts for different cities and towns in eastern Massachusetts.
