Both Saturday and Sunday will see a risk of showers with the highest likelihood on Sunday morning and into the afternoon.
It’s not that the showers are a huge problem — we need the rain badly (and could still use some more). But, it’s quite cold.
Like the past several days, there will be patches of showers throughout the day. Steadier rain is expected to fall in the evening. Highs today are in the 50s.
Today will be cloudy and damp with showers in some areas, particularly in the morning. Highs are in the 50s and are about 10 degrees below average for this time of year.
While it won’t rain nonstop, there are showers in the forecast for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
On Saturday, expect some light winds, abundant sunshine and pleasant temperatures, but Sunday will bring the clouds and chillier temperatures.
The weekend is looking stellar. It won’t be cloud-free, but there will be an abundance of sunshine and highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
After a chilly start to the day, today will be mostly sunny and mild.
Today highs may not get out of the 30s across the Worcester hills and will certainly remain in the 40s elsewhere.
Temperatures today will be pleasant. On Tuesday, however, highs won’t get out of the 40s. Expect to see showers on both days — which is good news, considering the Boston area really needs the rain.
