Cooler temperatures, rain come to town

Clouds will cover much of the sky today, with showers and thunderstorms developing statewide in the afternoon. Eastern Massachusetts will see temperatures in the high 70s, while regions more inland could see temperatures slightly higher in the mid-80s, according to the National Weather Service.

“The temperatures for the rest of the week won’t be nearly as oppressive as last week,” said meteorologist Bill Simpson.
