A cold front will sweep across the region this morning, bringing a few brief showers. Dry, less humid weather will follow, and temperatures will crest at 70, according to the National Weather Service.
“The state will see a chance for a few showers, but that will push off the coast by noontime,” said William Babcock, Weather Service meteorologist. “This afternoon will be mostly sunny.”
Many locations could see no rain at all, according to the weather service. A strong north wind will develop, with gusts up to 20 miles per hour. Skies will clear overnight, and temperatures will drop to the low 50s around Boston.
“In the West, we could see temperatures in the mid-30s,” Babcock said. “Some areas in the Berkshires could see the season’s first patchy frost.”
Friday will begin cool, but sunny skies should boost temperatures into the upper 60s. Rain is unlikely, and dew points will remain in the 50s. Temperatures will again drop into the 50s overnight, bringing chilly conditions to much of region.
Saturday will begin cool, but the sun will drive temperatures to around 80. Clouds will develop during the afternoon and linger into the night, and a spot shower is likely after 2 a.m. More sunshine is expected Sunday, and the vast majority of the state will remain dry. Scattered showers could pop up, but on the whole the day should be dry and pleasant.
“All in all, it should be a pretty nice weekend with seasonable temperatures,” Babcock said.
