Forecast: Mostly Sunny And Humid Today; Showers Friday

The very humid air mass over the Boston area will begin to lose its grip Thursday as cooler and noticeably drier air moves in this weekend.

Although it will be hot and very humid today, the atmosphere will be fairly stable. This means the risk of any shower or thunderstorm will be lessened compared to yesterday when Greater Boston saw several showers and thunderstorms form.

Daytime highs will be between 85-90 degrees through Friday. However, temperatures will drop to the lower 80s on Saturday. The lows will dip down even cooler on Sunday when clouds and showers move back into the region.
