Weekend Forecast: Sunny Friday Gives Brief Break From Dreary Days

We've had three days in a row of cloudy, raw and wet weather. However, the good news is Friday should feature some sunshine, especially for those situated inland.

Some coastal areas could see some low clouds and even drizzle Friday morning, but these conditions should burn off later in the morning and early afternoon. The thickest clouds Friday morning are hanging over southeastern Massachusetts with many areas reporting clear skies. It’s cool with some inland areas near 40.

The further west you are, the weather will be drier and sunnier. In areas with sun, temperatures will reach the mid and even upper 60s Friday afternoon. The clouds now over southeastern Massachusetts will move westward during the day so the morning will give the best weather before the day's end looks quite gloomy again.

Another system comes through Saturday with more clouds and some drizzle. There will be a period of heavier rain showers in the evening, but the bulk of the day will not see steady rain, even if it’s damp and somewhat raw. If you have outdoor plans and can muddle through with some drizzle, keep them in tact.

While I don’t expect a lot of rain, it will likely come down quite hard for a while Saturday. The good news is the system moves quickly enough and will clear out on Sunday for a great day with temperatures near 70. After nearly a week of cool damp air, the rise in temperatures is going to feel great!

The weather next week is looking quite nice as temperatures are seasonable or even a bit above normal. A few showers are possible in the middle of the week sandwiched between sunshine. Have a great weekend.

Friday: Mostly sunny, some clouds along the coast south of Boston. Clouds spread westward during the afternoon from the coast. Highs in the lower to mid 60s.

Friday night: Mostly cloudy with some drizzle towards dawn. Lows in the lower 50s.

Saturday: Lots of clouds. Highs in the mid 60s. Some spotty drizzle, but any steady showers hold off until near sunset.

Sunday: Mostly sunny highs in the mid 60s.

Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 70.

Tuesday: A blend of clouds and sunshine. Highs 68-74.
