The entire Bay State will feel a drop in temperatures overnight, with lows of 25 degrees in Boston, 16 in Taunton, 12 in Haverhill, and 13 in Marlborough.

Temps will not recover much, either, with Friday’s highs expected in the low 20s outside of Interstate 95 and the mid-20s in and around Boston.

The weekend will be clear and breezy at times, with highs around 45 degrees and a slight chance of showers late Saturday into Sunday. The mild temperatures will be in short supply next week, Simpson said, as a cold front moves through mid-week, bringing highs in the upper teens and low 20s.
