BOSTON — Rain is expected to fall this weekend. However, the worst of it will fall between midnight tonight and 10 a.m. Saturday. Another chance of showers could strike after 4 p.m. Sunday, but otherwise, weekend outdoor activities outside these windows should go off without a hitch.
Muggy air will continue today and early Saturday, but without much heat, the humidity isn’t hard to bear. Temperature highs this afternoon and Saturday will be within a few degrees of 70, with a slight five- or six-degree dip Sunday.
A slow moving cold front is stuck west of the city and is the cause of the rainfall. As this front finally pushes off the coast Saturday morning, the showers will end. Behind the front, cooler and somewhat unsettled weather will be with us for the first few days of the week. While showers are in the forecast through Tuesday, most of days are looking dry.
Today: Lots of clouds. A shower is possible late morning or early afternoon. Highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Tonight: Cloudy this evening, then a period of rain. Breezy. Lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
Saturday: Rain ending in the morning, the some clearing. Highs around 70.
Sunday: Partly sunny with showers possible late in the day. Highs in the mid-60s.
Monday: A blend of clouds and sunshine. A pop-up shower.
Tuesday: A mix of clouds and sunshine. Afternoon showers in some areas. Highs 61-66 degrees.
