While the next few days are predicted to be in the high 80s and low 90s with plenty of sun, the end of the week could bring storms, according to local meteorologists.

The National Weather Service predicts “a stretch of spectacular summer weather through Wednesday with warm temperatures and low humidity.”

But humidity returns on Thursday, and with it there could be rain showers and thunderstorms.

“A cold front will likely bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to the area Thursday night into Friday,” the service said. “Dry and less humid weather may return next Saturday.”

For the potential thunderstorms on Thursday, the timing of the destabilization of the weather will affect if there will be “a marginal threat of a few strong storms along with heavy downpours,” the service said.


In his seven-day forecast, Barry Burbank, a meteorologist with WBZ, said the weather points to a “great vacation week.”

“The only interruption will be Friday when showers and storms occur,” he said. “The humidity will be comfortable through most of [Wednesday] then ramps up to high [Thursday] and oppressive [Friday].”

Eric Fisher, also a meteorologist with WBZ, said this will be a “tremendous week of weather.”

“We will be trending hotter mid month…not expecting any shortage of heat this July,” he said.

WBZ meteorologist Terry Eliasen said the “weather is officially on cruise control…enjoy the ride.” He predicts an 80 percent chance of rain on Friday.
