Skies should be partly sunny during the day, and become increasingly cloudy through the afternoon. High temperatures will crest near in the upper 60s in Boston; Western Massachusetts could see highs in the mid-70s. Temperatures will drop to the mid-50s to lower 60s overnight, forecasters said.

Some light drizzle could fall before 11 a.m. Thursday, though it will “most likely be from Worcester on west,” Simpson said. Skies will be mostly cloudy, and highs could reach into the 70s. Temperatures should sink into the high 50s and lower 60s overnight.

The week should end on a cloudy, wet note, with heavy rain showers to strike by late Friday.

“It’s definitely going to happen Friday night into Saturday with some heavier, big rains in the western part of the state,” Simpson said. “Boston could get an inch or so [of rain], and it could linger into Sunday.”

Friday will be mostly cloudy, with high temperatures reaching the lower 70s in some areas and wind gusts as fast as 30 miles per hour. Cloudy skies should continue into the evening as rain showers begin to fall.

The weekend should be cool and gray. Rain should continue into Saturday morning, with scattered showers likely until early next week, forecasters said.
