Temps could soar to mid-60s, breaking record

The mercury could top 1907’s record high of 64 degrees today, thanks to a warm front moving through the Bay State, the National Weather Service said.

“It’s not out of the realm of possibility that we could break that record,” said meteorologist Charlie Foley.

The toasty temperatures are above December’s average by more than 15 degrees, Foley said.

Showers will continue intermittently throughout the day and evening, Foley said, with the bulk of the rain south of Boston toward Southeastern Massachusetts.

The rain will not affect the evening’s commute, though pockets of moderate, scattered showers will be on hand during the Patriots’ game against the Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium tonight, he said.

“We’ve been dry, so the rain is a beneficial thing,” Foley said.

Dry weather and cooler temperatures will enter the region Tuesday, he said.

Bay Staters will wake up to clouds Tuesday morning, but the skies will clear and become sunny by the afternoon.

“As the warm front moves through the north [this evening], it will be replaced by high pressure and drier weather for tomorrow and much of the rest of the week,” Foley said.

Highs will still be above normal Tuesday, in the upper 40s, Foley said, then drop slightly below average into the low 40s on Wednesday.

The rest of the week will be sunny with temperatures in the 40s, according to the weather service.
