Forecast: Showers End And Today Will Be Warm And Mostly Dry Again

A few showers around the area this morning will quickly end with cloudy skies gradually becoming sunny. A cold front is moving off the coast today and with it goes the brief break in our dry pattern, which will resume later today.

It’s going to be warm today. Highs are going to reach into the 80s as humidity levels decrease and skies brighten.

Tomorrow the air will be a bit unstable. Clouds will mix with the sunshine, and there could be a quick shower, but still nothing significant. Sunshine will still be the dominant player in the sky.

Thursday brings a chance of showers. The models, as usual are bringing the chance for rain, but it’s not a sure bet. We are in a dry, drought-like pattern and very often when these patterns occur any rain that is forecast ends up being less than predicted.

Whatever rain does occur will end by Thursday evening, and it’s back to the sunshine for the end of the week and the upcoming weekend.

Temperatures are going to really become quite warm this weekend, and we could be looking at the first official heat wave for inland areas beginning Saturday. Remember, a heat wave is three days in a row with temperatures reaching or exceeding 90 degrees.

Today: Partly sunny and slightly humid for a couple of hours. A few showers or a thunderstorm possible. Highs in the low- to mid-70s along the coast, upper 70s to low 80s inland.

Tonight: Clear and comfortable. Lows 56-64, warmest in Boston.

Wednesday: Mainly sunny and pleasant. There could be a quick shower. Highs 76-81.

Thursday: Mainly cloudy, a few showers in the middle of the afternoon. Highs in the mid 70s.

Friday: Partly sunny, highs in the 70s to lower 80s.

Saturday: Mostly sunny and warm. Highs 82-87. Warmest inland, cooler 70s Cape Cod.
