A sunny start, but showers likely later Monday

The week is off to a beautiful start, but we could experience a thunderstorm by the end of the day, forecasters said.

“Today we’ll have some scattered showers and maybe a pop-up thunderstorm,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Stephanie Dunten. “It’s going to be one of those situations where Boston will get a shower, but Medford won’t get anything.”

Skies will start our sunny, gradually turning cloudy in the afternoon as high temperatures rise into the upper 60s. Clouds should become heavier overnight, with low temperatures near 51 degrees.
