It was a cold Friday morning.

A frost advisory was in effect for Eastern Massachusetts until 9 a.m., and the National Weather Service tweeted that people should wear “an extra layer or two” and give themselves “a bit of extra time to either warm up the car or scrape off the frost.”

There will be clear skies and plenty of sunshine in the Boston area, and overall Friday should turn out to be a nice day, with highs in the lower 60s, forecasters said.

“After a cold start early this morning, much milder weather returns this afternoon into Saturday along with gusty winds along the coast,” forecasters said.


Southwest winds will be blowing 10 to 15 miles per hour, with gusts of up to 30 miles per hour. The strongest of those winds will be felt across the Cape and Islands, forecasters said.

Friday night will be partly cloudy with temperatures dropping into the lower 50s and a chance of showers after midnight, forecasters said.

“Far from a washout though, as much of the night will feature dry weather,” forecasters said.

A wind advisory is in effect for Barnstable County and Dukes County from 11 p.m. Friday to noon Saturday, the weather service said. With gusts of to 45 miles per hour possible, there’s the potential for downed trees and isolated power outages, forecasters said.

Saturday will be mostly cloudy with a chance of showers in the morning, and then the skies will clear up to make way for sunshine in the afternoon.

“With partial sunshine and a mild start, high temperatures should soar well into the 60s across many locations,” forecasters said. “Dry weather should dominate after any left over showers exit the region by mid to late morning.”

In the Boston area, temperatures Saturday are expected to reach the upper 60s, and there will be southwest winds of 10 to 15 miles per hour with gusts of up to 35 miles per hour, forecasters said.


Saturday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the lower 40s, and then Sunday will be sunny and much cooler, with temperatures staying in the mid-40s.
