Forecasters call for a spring-like day, then a return to fall

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, but it sure feels like spring. Not for long, unfortunately. Rain and lower temperatures are ahead for the weekend.

After Massachusetts basks in the sunshine today and temperatures rise to the mid-50s, a cold front will push scattered showers and chilly temperatures into the region, according to the National Weather Service.

Bay Staters could start seeing raindrops as soon as the sun sets today, said meteorologist Bill Simpson.

“There will be light showers by late evening,” Simpson said. “The western half of the state may get a bit more.”

Western Massachusetts might also see some snowflakes, he said.

The rain will taper off by Saturday morning for much of the state, but it will take a little longer for the wet weather to make its way through the Cape and Islands, Simpson said.

The sun will peek through the clouds by late Saturday morning, but it will only get as warm as 47 in the city, he said.

Saturday night will be mostly clear and temperatures will dip into the high 20s.

Sunday will be dry and sunny, but with temperatures in the mid-40s, it’ll be a chilly day, Simpson said.

Temperatures Sunday night will be right around the freezing point.
