Temps edge over 50 degrees today in Boston

Take off that scarf, pull out those sunglasses, and try not to shed tears of happiness. We’ve topped 50 degrees today.

Temperatures reached 51 degrees in Boston today, inching above the 49-degree average, National Weather Service meteorologist Charlie Foley said.

But clear skies will give way to clouds marching south from Maine, Foley said, bringing a slight chance for rain showers throughout the state this evening.

After midnight, scattered rain and snow showers along the northern and eastern parts of the state could add some slush to the roads, but no real accumulation, Foley said. Temperatures will drop to the low to mid-30s overnight.

Thursday will feel raw, Foley said, with temperatures dropping to the mid-40s and rain lingering into the afternoon. Overnight into Friday, lows will reach the mid-30s.

The week will end on a good note, however, with partly sunny skies and temperatures in the low 50s. Those conditions are expected to continue through the weekend, Foley said, punctuated by a frontal system pushing through Sunday night, bringing showers that will clear out following the Monday morning commute.
