Forecast: Dry, Cool And Cloudy Day Before Rainy Weekend

While there might be a few light showers this morning south of Boston, the trend today will be for a drier, cooler and cloudier day than yesterday.

Since winds will be coming off the water, it’s also not going to be very warm. Highs will stay in the upper 60s along the beaches of Essex County and parts of Cape Cod and only warm into the mid-70s inland. There could be some sunny breaks, but don’t count on a bright day.

It’s going to be really nice for sleeping tonight with lows in the 50s and a light breeze. Keeping the windows open in late June is a treat as it’s not out of the question we could be having day after day of humidity.

This isn’t going to be a great weekend of weather if you wanted it hot and sunny. I hate editorializing the weather, because there are folks out there who love the rain, even on a weekend.

The driest part of the weekend will be Saturday before 3 p.m and Sunday after 10 a.m. It won’t rain the entire time between that, but that’s when the bulk of the rain will fall. Actually, most of the rain will fall between 7 p.m Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday.

Areas could see a 1- to 2-inch, wind-swept rain during this time, and it’s also going to be quite cool. There is a chance if the weather system moves quickly enough on Sunday we could see some sunshine for the end of the afternoon and evening.

Next week continues the active pattern with no big heat that will last on the horizon.

Today: An early shower south otherwise mostly cloudy and cooler. Highs 68-75.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming clear, lows in the 50s.

Saturday: Sunshine followed by increasing clouds, showers moving in by the end of the day. Highs in the low to mid 70s.

Sunday: Rain early, then clouds may break later in the day with highs near 70.

Monday: Partly sunny, with a high near 75.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny with a pop-up late day storm. Highs near 80.
