Fog is gone; afternoon to be sunny

Get ready for another sunny day, though the recent dry spell should break by the end of the week.

The sun burned through this morning’s fog by noon at the Globe’s offices in Boston. Mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid-60s are expected for the region this afternoon, National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Dunham said.


The only drawback? The humidity that came along with this morning’s fog, expected again Tuesday morning, hasn’t helped to alleviate dry conditions, Dunham said. The weather service is warning of an increased risk of brush fires through Tuesday.

After the sun burns through Tuesday morning’s fog, temperatures are set to climb into the mid-70s, with partly sunny skies, Dunham said. A southeasterly sea breeze could cool temperatures into the 60s along the immediate coastline, he said.

Highs will reach the mid-60s Wednesday ahead of possible showers expected to move into the Boston area in the afternoon. Dunham said the best chance for showers across the state is overnight into Thursday.

Skies should be cloudy with highs in the upper 60s Thursday with a chance of showers. Things should dry out Friday ahead of a potentially wet weekend, Dunham said, with showers possible both Saturday and Sunday.
