Gloomy weather for Boston today, but sunshine coming

The city has a gloomy day ahead, but sunshine isn’t too far away.

“We have some heavier showers approaching, and we might even hear a rumble of thunder in Boston,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Dunham. “Friday will be much better.”

In Lexington this morning, a person was struck by lightning and a two-alarm within ten minutes of each other, officials said.


Scattered rain showers should continue through this afternoon. Skies will be mostly cloudy and high temperatures will climb into the upper 50s. Rain should peter out before 10 p.m. as temperatures sink to 42 degrees.

Sunshine should return Thursday, along with some brisk winds. “We’ll have highs in the upper 50s, but it will feel colder because of the wind,” Dunham said. “Winds will be 20 to 30 miles per hour with gusts up to 45.”

Skies should stay clear overnight, with low temperatures at 41 degrees.

Friday will see some warmer weather, with less wind and high temperatures climbing to 60 degrees. Some clouds should arrive in the evening, bringing a slight chance of rain after 11 p.m. Low temperatures should be in the mid-40s.
