Forecast: Warm And Sunny Before Raw Cold Wraps Weekend

This article is more than 5 years old.

A sparkling day will cap off a week that showcased a lot of different weather.

Yesterday's wind was rather significant, but today, the wind is gone, leaving us with a much calmer and bright day. Highs today will reach the lower 60s inland but stay in the cooler 50s at the coast when the sea breeze starts this afternoon. The east wind, which is very chilly in late April, is going to play into our forecast for much of the upcoming period.

Tomorrow morning looks wet, as a vigorous weather system will cross the area. The showers will begin before sunrise and end late in the morning. However, even if it's dry, skies are likely to continue into the afternoon.

It will be very raw tomorrow with highs in the 40s. There may be a few light showers Saturday night, but the evening will not bring any heavy rain. Sunday looks to be mostly cloudy and Saturday's cool temperatures are likely to persist with highs reaching the upper 40s to lower 50s. Some rays of sunshine might break through the clouds, however, there is also the chance of a brief, light shower.

Most of next week is expected to remain chilly, with the past weeks' 60-degree readings becoming a distant memory as several days stay plunged into the 40s.

Friday: Sunny with highs in the upper 50s to mid-60s. It will be coolest at the immediate coastline.

Friday night: Clear early then clouding up with showers developing before sunrise. Los in the lower 40s.

Saturday: Morning showers, and even some downpours. Very raw with highs only in the 40s. Most of the rain will end by noon.

Saturday night: The nighttime will be raw and chilly with very light showers. Lows in the mid-30s to lower 40s.

Sunday: Chilly and cool. Lots of clouds with a few breaks of sunshine. Highs in the 50-55 degree range.

Monday: Mostly sunny with a high near 55 inland, but upper 40s in Boston and at the coast.

Tuesday: Partly sunny and chilly with highs between 46-52.
