Forecast: Chance Of Showers Ahead

BOSTON — The week isn’t looking like a washout but there are showers in the forecast for the next several days. Wednesday is the only day this week when there isn’t really a chance of any rain. The best chance for rain is Thursday.

What you will notice today and tomorrow is that clouds build up during the morning. There could be a shower before noon, but most of the shower activity comes after 2 p.m. You might even hear the rumble of thunder if some of the showers grow in size enough.

Showers will tend to end and die out as the sun sets each evening. Temperatures will be about average for the time of year, neither cool nor hot, but mostly in the upper 60s to around 70.

As the system bringing the showers moves east Wednesday there will be more sunshine that day. It won’t last however as a new system brings a renewed opportunity for rain on Thursday lingering into Friday morning.

Right now the timing of this system is such that it will leave the area for the holiday weekend. I’ll update the forecast for the weekend during the week. This week’s showers won’t seem to bad if we end up with a nice three-day weekend ahead. Stay tuned.

Monday: Morning sunshine and clouds with a few showers possible by mid morning and more likely this afternoon. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Monday night: Any showers and thunderstorms end during the evening. Lows in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Tuesday: Clouds and sunshine once again ending with a chance of showers and a thunderstorm. Highs in the 65-72 range.

Wednesday: Partly sunny and pleasant. Highs of 68 to 74.

Thursday: Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm. Cool with highs of 58 to 64.

Friday: Lots of clouds and still the chance for a shower. Highs in the upper 60s.

Weekend: Drier and turning milder.
