BOSTON — Heavy morning rain will become showery in nature today as a pair of frontal systems pushes the cool marine air out to sea. Temperatures will rebound into the 60s this afternoon after a cool morning. It will even feel a bit humid this afternoon. If there is enough sunshine some spots may hit 70.
I left the word “shower” in the forecast for Friday and Saturday as the air is not perfectly stable and while there will be a lot of sunshine a pop-up shower could occur. Temperatures both days will be in the 60s.
On Sunday a better chance of showers comes to the region as some energy crosses. These showers could develop into thunderstorms and it’s not out of the question some small hair could occur. Of course, this is still four days away, and it could change but as of now Saturday is clearly the better day this weekend.
The first half of next week is looking drier and seasonable with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. You will undoubtedly notice a dramatic change in the amount of greening that come this weekend and next week. As the cool air finally leaves and after significant rainfall the plants should respond accordingly.
Thursday: Morning showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Cool early, then becoming milder with highs in the 60s. Breaks of sunshine will help develop a few scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms but not everyone sees them. Winds will be gusty.
Thursday night: Mild with a chance of evening showers or storms. Lows of 45 to 52.
Friday: Mostly sunny. A slight risk of a pop-up shower during the mid day. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.
Saturday: Mostly sunny and mild. Still the slight risk of a quick shower in the afternoon. Overall a great day with highs in the 60s.
Sunday: A better chance of afternoon showers and even a thunderstorm. Highs in the 60s. There will also be periods of sunshine.
Monday: Mostly sunny with highs in the lower 60s.
