Some light rain is expected to sprinkle over Southeastern Massachusetts and the Cape today while the rest of the state stays mostly dry. Skies today will be partly sunny, with high temperatures climbing to an above-average 66 degrees. Heavier clouds should arrive in the evening as temperatures sink to 48 degrees.

Saturday should be similar, with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid-60s. Skies will become cloudier in the afternoon as temperatures sink into the lower 50s.

Sunshine will return Sunday morning, but it won’t stay for long. Rain and thunderstorms should arrive by 5 p.m., bringing a chance of hail in some areas.

“There will be a few peeks of sunshine, but I can’t rule out one or two thunderstorms sending down some hail,” Dunham said.

High temperatures should climb to 63 degrees before the rain arrives. Skies will become mostly cloudy in the evening as temperatures drop to 46 degrees.

Next week should start off dry and sunny — and things should stay that way until Thursday, forecasters said.
