A cold front moving into the Bay State today could break the recent spell of summery weather, forecasters said.
The greater Boston area is expected to see sunny skies and high temperatures around 90 degrees today. The normal high for today in Boston is 70 degrees, said Kim Buttrick, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Taunton.
“It’s definitely unseasonably warm,” Buttrick said.
But the cold front will bring a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms tonight, forecasters said. Temperatures should drop some 30 degrees to the upper 50s tonight.
Cooler weather is expected for Thursday, with highs in the lower 70s and skies shifting from mostly cloudy in the morning to partly sunny. Temperatures should retreat to the mid-50s Thursday night.
Dry, cool weather is expected to continue until summery weather makes a comeback later this Memorial Day weekend, Buttrick said.
“We’re expecting dry weather for the weekend, with a return to unseasonable warmth … on Sunday into Monday,” Buttrick said.
