BOSTON — A cool morning across the region is accompanied by breaks of sunshine. The day is going to be dry and warmer than yesterday. Highs this afternoon will reach the 60s in most areas. The farther away from the ocean you are, the higher into the 60s it will be.
The next several days will continue to see an increase in the amount of moisture in the air. The means the chance of showers increases as we approach the weekend and peaks Friday night and Saturday.
You will notice more humidity in the air the next few days as well. The air may become sticky enough by tomorrow for some of you to be uncomfortable. If we see enough sunshine, inland areas could nudge the upper 70s to near 80, but most of us stay in the lower 70s.
The threat of showers increases later Friday. Some of the showers Friday night and Saturday could contain heavy downpours and thunder.
Temperatures over the weekend will be in the 60s. On Saturday I don’t expect any sunshine and there will be showers all day. Sunday is a better day with a blend of clouds and sun but still with the risk of a few showers.
If you have flexibility with your plans this weekend keep indoor plans on Saturday and outdoor events on Sunday. Although there is a chance of showers both days, Sunday is definitely the drier of the two.
Next week looks somewhat unsettled and cool.
Wednesday: Partly sunny and not as cool. Temperatures will be in the lower 60s at the coast and near 70 inland.
Wednesday night: Clouds and some fog or drizzle late at night. Lows in the 50s.
Thursday: Thicker clouds in the morning with some sunny breaks in the afternoon. There is a chance of a shower and it will be more humid. Highs in the 70s.
Friday: Clouds with some breaks of sun. A shower or two is possible. Highs in the lower 70s.
Saturday: Showers and some downpours. Highs in the 60s.
Sunday: Lots of clouds. Cool with a few showers possible. Highs of 61 to 66.
