Skies today will be mostly sunny and remain clear overnight. High temperatures in the low 20s will sink to around 9 degrees in the evening in Boston. But it will be much colder in the interior. Temperatures will drop towards zero or below in Central and Western Massachusetts.

Cloudy conditions will return Tuesday. High temperatures will be in the mid-20s, though wind chill values could be as low as zero degrees, forecasters said. Lows will drop into the upper teens overnight.

Wednesday will be slightly warmer, with highs reaching 30 degrees. Mostly cloudy skies will persist throughout the day and overnight as temperatures sink into the lower 20s.

Some snow could fall Thursday, though the chance of precipitation is only 30 percent.

“It doesn’t look to be any kind of blockbuster storm right now,” said weather service meteorologist Charlie Foley.

Skies will be mostly cloudy with highs reaching 33 before dropping into the mid-20s.

A slight warmup will occur Friday as high temperatures climb to 40 degrees, which would be — drumroll, please — around normal. Sunny skies will give way to cloudy conditions in the evening as temperatures drop into the upper 20s.
