April weather in Massachusetts can be unpredictable. Highs, on average, range between 55F and 65F (12C and 18C), with lows between 35F and 45F (1C and 7C). You might see sunshine, rain, (or on rare occasions, snow). We suggest checking the forecast when packing to make sure you’ll have appropriate wear.

“If you don’t like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes.” – Mark Twain
