Rain Friday night, but a sunny, dry weekend ahead

Some spring rain tonight should clear up by Saturday morning, giving way to sunny and dry conditions this weekend, forecasters said.

“The brunt of the rain will be overnight, but it should be over in Boston by mid-morning,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson. “The normal temperature for this time of year is 54 or 55, and we’ll definitely be warmer than that.”

Some scattered light rain could fall today as high temperatures climb into the mid-60s. Skies will become mostly cloudy in the evening, with scattered showers and low temperatures dropping into the lower 40s.


Showers should peter out by mid-morning Saturday, with skies becoming mostly sunny and high temperatures near 60 degrees. Mostly clear skies will prevail in the evening as temperatures sink into the mid-40s.
