Forecast: Chance Of Afternoon Showers

This article is more than 7 years old.

Sunshine will be most abundant this morning before cooler marine air moves in for the afternoon with scattered showers. Temperatures today will be highly dependent on your exact location. This afternoon a cold front will move south along the coast from Maine and bring a period of showers along with a drop in temperatures.

The cool air will first enter Massachusetts around Rockport, Ipswich and Salisbury then push south and west through the rest of area during the afternoon and early evening. The later the front passes, the warmer readings will be before the cool air arrives.

There will be showers with the front and the evening commute will likely be wet in many places. Tomorrow will be a cool and damp day with a raw wind off the ocean. Highs will likely remain in the 50s as ocean water is still quite cold.

On Thursday, high pressure briefly builds into the area for a nice day, but showers return for Friday and the start of the weekend and the final day of May. If the system bringing the showers moves quickly, we should see a return to sunshine on Sunday.

Tuesday: Partly sunny in the morning with more clouds and a chance of showers in the afternoon. Highs around 70 but cooler at the coast. All areas will see readings fall late in the afternoon.

Tuesday night: A period of showers in the evening and then cooler and damp. Lows of 48 to 52.

Wednesday: Raw and much cooler. Some drizzle or morning showers. Highs in the 50s.

Thursday: Sunny and not as chilly. Highs of 65 to 70.

Friday: A chance of showers with lots of clouds. Highs in the 60s.

Saturday: Cloudy with some sunny breaks. A shower possible. highs in the mid to upper 60s.
