BOSTON A cool morning will transition into a warmer afternoon with highs reaching the upper 60s and lower 70s. There will be plenty of sunshine this morning. However, clouds will increase during the afternoon, and there is the chance for showers and storms later this afternoon and early evening.
The area will stay dry through the early afternoon before any storms develop and move southward.
Not everyone will see showers and storms, but if you do there is the chance the storms could bring heavy rain and even hail. The air above us is still quite cold, which could help hail form.
The front responsible for the upcoming showers and storms will move through the area overnight. The Red Sox game could be delayed at times if one of these storms hits the Fenway area. By Saturday morning, most, if not all, of the showers are over, but clouds will remain for a few hours. The weekend’s trend will reveal increasingly sunny skies, but Saturday will also turn a bit cooler in the afternoon. It will mostly be in the 60s tomorrow.
Sunday is the pick of the weekend with constant sunshine and highs in the 70s. The day looks to be a nearly perfect start to June. Warm weather will continue into early next week before a renewed shot of cool and rainy weather comes around for the middle of next week.
Friday: Mostly sunny, but with a chance of showers or a storm this afternoon. Highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s inland.
Friday night: Scattered showers and storms the first half of the night, before turning just cloudy. Lows 48-52.
Saturday: Cloudy and raw early, then increasingly sunny and cool. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.
Sunday: Sunny with highs between 70-76, but turning cooler at the beaches in the afternoon.
Monday: Mostly sunny and warm. Highs between 75-80.
Tuesday: Clouds and some sun. Showers possible in the afternoon with a high in the lower 70s.
