    Sun makes a comeback this afternoon

    After a gloomy morning, the sun has made a late appearance, promising a sunny Memorial Day.

    A sprinkle or two may interrupt, however.

    “There could be a few showers through late afternoon,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson. “Then a cold front should come through tonight.”


    Today will continue to warm up, with temperatures rising to an above-average 85 degrees, Simpson said. Light rain showers will likely appear off and on throughout the day, accompanied by wind gusts as brisk as 30 miles per hour.

    “Boston should stay pretty warm,” Simpson said. “We’ll be in the mid-70s by 8 [p.m.] and then in the upper 60s through late evening.” Low temperatures should be near 62 degrees overnight.

    Tuesday will be partly sunny but much cooler, with high temperatures starting off at 64 degrees in the early morning, then dropping into the mid-50s for the remainder of the day, Simpson said. Skies will become mostly cloudy overnight Tuesday as temperatures drop to 49 degrees overnight, bringing the possibility of more light showers.

    “There will be a chance for showers for Tuesday into Wednesday,” Simpson said.

    Rain should peter out before 11 a.m. Wednesday, giving way to cloudy skies and high temperatures near 57 degrees. Partly cloudy skies are expected to continue into the evening, with low temperatures in the upper 40s overnight.


    Some sunshine is expected to return Thursday, with mostly cloudy skies and highs near 65 degrees. Showers are possible in the afternoon as temperatures drop to 52 degrees.

    Gloomy skies will be back Friday, with temperatures cresting again in the mid-60s. Showers are possible in the evening and continuing overnight as low temperatures sink to 54 degrees.
