Turned the heat off yet? Making do with just a sweater and the warmth given off by your appliances? Well, tonight, you might want the heat on again.
Temperatures will dip in some areas into the 30s, with cloudy skies also expected, according to the National Weather Service in Taunton.
“Certainly the blankets and the heating tonight will be welcome,” said Charlie Foley, a meteorologist for the weather service.
The coldest temperatures will be felt in the interior, particularly in western Massachusetts, where temperatures are expected to drop near freezing. Along the coast, the mercury will drop to the low to mid-40s.
Highs today will be in the mid-50s, with a 30 or 40 percent chance of rain later this afternoon. On Friday, skies will be mostly sunny, with temperatures in the low 70s for locations away from the coast, and in the upper 60s for locations near the coast, the weather service predicts.
“Tomorrow will be a spectacular day,” Foley said.
After tonight it should be safe to turn off the heat again, as lows will push back up into the low 50s, he said.
Temperatures this weekend will be in the mid-60s, with a chance of occasional rain showers. A mix of sun and clouds is expected.
