Boston Marathon 2012: Weather Forecast, Road Closures And More

Patriot's Day is finally here and with it, the Boston Marathon.

The world's oldest marathon will be run for the 116th time and it couldn't have better weather had it been hand-picked. Whether you're a runner or spectator it will be a beautiful and summer-like morning.

The high is expected to reach 86 degrees with a nice breeze of 10-20 MPH winds coming from a SSW direction. There will be some cloud cover until around noon, when the temperature is expected to spike.

The previous record for Boston on April 16th is 84 degrees set back in 2003.
