Weekend expected to be mostly clear and dry
Today should be another nice day, with temperatures in the mid-50s, despite some lingering clouds this morning.
A storm system brushing Cape Cod and the South Coast with showers will miss Boston, clearing out by noon, the National Weather Service said.
The sun will come out this afternoon, as skies become partly sunny across the state with highs reaching 56 in Boston, 53 in Plymouth, and 58 in Lawrence, forecasters said.
Clouds will sag south this evening, giving way to clear and dry conditions for much of the weekend, meteorologist Kim Buttrick said. Tonight looks brisk, as lows could drop into the upper 20s, with mostly clear skies.
On Saturday, temperatures will hover near 50, the normal high in Boston, coupled with clear, sunny skies.
On Sunday, the mercury climbs into the upper 50s as clouds increase throughout the day across the state.
The weekend’s mild weather continues next week with highs in the 60s Monday and Tuesday, the weather service said. Tuesday through Thursday, showers could creep into the state thanks to a slight cool-down lasting through the end of the week.Lauren Dezenski can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
