Forecast: Rain On The Way For Thursday

Although the air will reach over 40 degrees for the next five days, overall temperatures are still way below average.

The sunniest part of today will be this morning, with bright blue skies and light winds.

Temperatures will rise to above freezing by 10 a.m., and there will be some more melting of the remaining snowpack.

A warm front is going to approach the area this afternoon and bring a period of rain overnight. This rain will be steady and with temperatures above freezing all night, this will be one of the milder overnights in quite some time.

As the warm front passes, temperatures will be able to rise further on Thursday, reaching the 50s. This will be the mildest day since March 11, Boston hit 57 degrees.

A cold front brings another round of rain or showers later Thursday, and a quick thunderstorm isn’t out of the question. The showers end Thursday night along with another overnight melt.

Colder weather returns for Friday and the weekend. It will be in the low to mid 40s, but this is still below average. Additional showers could return late Sunday or Monday.

Today: Increasing clouds and pleasant. Highs in the mid 40s.

Tonight: A period of rain developing overnight. Temperatures in the mid to upper 30s.

Thursday: A period of rain or showers, especially in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 50s.

Thursday night: Showers, and possibly, an evening thunderstorm. Lows in the lower 40s.

Friday: Lots of clouds, brief showers. Highs remaining in the 40s.

Saturday: Partly sunny and unseasonably chilly. Highs in the lower 40s.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 45.
