National Weather Service

A few showers could pass through the northwest part of the state today, Dunham said. The east should stay mostly dry. “A light sprinkle would barely be noticeable for the Greater Boston area,” Dunham said.

“Saturday’s the pick of the weekend, with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s,” Dunham continued. A few scattered showers may move in Saturday night, starting in Western Massachusetts and hitting Boston a little after midnight, Dunham said.

The showers will likely continue into Sunday, with the best chance of precipitation in the morning, Dunham said. The rain “could last into the late morning, early afternoon,” Dunham said, but the day won’t be a washout, even in the morning hours.

The precipitation should move out of the region by the beginning of next week, at least until Wednesday.

“Back to work Monday: Looking nice,” Dunham said.
