Local meteorologists say you should grab your umbrella when you head out for the day Tuesday.

National Weather Service forecasters are predicting that “hit or miss” rain showers cannot be ruled out for the afternoon, even as the day warms to reach temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s.

“Cannot rule out a rumble of thunder or two, so keep an eye to the sky this afternoon,” the meteorologists said.

According to the service’s seven-day forecast for Boston, the city will see showers likely after 3 p.m. and before 10 p.m.
