The weather this week will start out dreary, but skies will clear Thursday, and a beautiful weekend lies ahead, according to the National Weather Service.

Scattered showers and cloudy skies will be the norm for the next few days.

The heaviest rain will fall Tuesday night in the western half of the state, with 2 ½ inches accumulating into Wednesday. The Boston area is expected to see about 1 ½ inches.

Highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s through Wednesday.

Skies are expected to clear Thursday and remain mostly sunny through the weekend.

Temperatures Thursday and into the weekend will be in the 70s.
