Forecast: Weekend Will Be A Mix Of Sun And Rain

This article is more than 3 years old.

The fog and even some drizzles rolled in overnight and this means a cloudy and raw start to the day once again. Unlike yesterday, when inland areas cleared almost completely, today will see just breaks of sunshine in the afternoon.

This afternoon it will even feel slightly muggy. There could be scattered showers but they will be few and far between and if you get one, it won’t last.

Tonight looks good if you are headed to Gillette Stadium for the Beyoncé concert. If you are just headed out for dinner or a stroll, it will be dry.

The weekend itself is going to be a split of good weather and not so good. Saturday is clearly the nice day. We will see sunshine and warm temperatures. Inland areas will reach the lower 80s, while it remains in the 70s at the coast.

Sunday morning should still be dry. If you want to play golf and you have a tee time prior to 9 a.m., you should be able to get a four-hour round in. However, if you are playing into the afternoon, especially after 1 or 2 p.m., you can expect rain to develop. It will be cooler and there will be an onshore flow of cool air as well.

The rain will become steady and even heavy during the evening and first part of Sunday night. Many areas could see over an inch of rain from this system. This will hopefully be a good soaking rain, great for the lawns and gardens, but unfortunately not good timing for weekend plans.
