Sun in forecast, but weekend could bring rain

National Weather Service

The rest of the week should see at least partial sun before some showers move in for the weekend, the National Weather Service said.

“Today, a few clouds this morning, but it should average out to be partly sunny,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Dunham. “There is a slight, slight chance of a sprinkle ... but a better chance of seeing nothing.” Today will be “very pleasant, with highs in the upper 70s. Overall, a pretty nice day,” he said.

Thursday, there is a slight chance of afternoon showers west of Worcester, but Boston will see “mostly sunny skies” and will be “a bit warmer” than Wednesday, Dunham said.


Friday will be mostly sunny, and humidity will be rising, though it won’t be anything “we haven’t dealt with before,” Dunham said. High temperatures may reach the mid-80s. After midnight, Dunham said, there is a slight chance of showers, but they will more likely arrive closer to dawn.

The weekend will likely see some rain.

“Basically, you’re looking at mostly cloudy with a chance of showers both” Saturday and Sunday, Dunham said. Temperatures are expected to be cooler, only reaching the mid-70s.

By the beginning of next week, the rain should clear. The sun is expected to return just “when it’s time to go back to work on Monday,” Dunham said.
