Forecast calls for a rainy week, followed by a beautiful Mother’s Day

Rain will begin and end the day with a lull in between, and more of the same is expected through the week. The skies will clear, however, just in time for people to enjoy the Mother’s Day weekend, the National Weather Service says

Precipitation will taper off late this morning but will likely return in the afternoon in full force, with a possible total accumulation of up to 1.25 inches of rain in Boston. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Rain will continue into Wednesday, with some areas even seeing thunderstorms tonight and Wednesday afternoon, said weather service meteorologist Charlie Foley.

Temperatures on Wednesday are expected to rise to the upper 60s in Eastern Massachusetts to the mid-70s in western parts of the state, he said.

On Thursday and Friday, temperatures will stick in the upper 60s throughout the state as the rain continues.

The rain is likely to persist until Friday afternoon, when the low pressure system moves out to sea.

On Saturday, skies will be partly sunny, and temperatures are expected to be in the mid- to upper 60s.

Mother’s Day is one of the nicest days in the forecast, Foley said, with mostly clear skies and temperatures in the mid-70s predicted for most areas.
