    Today (Thursday): Cool start then mild. Highs in the 70s. Overnight Thursday: Increasing clouds. Lows in the 40s and 50s. Friday: Rain north and west in the morning, moving east through the day. Highs in the 60s.

    (Published Thursday, June 15, 2017)

    After two beautiful June days, clouds are on the rebound tonight, but it stays dry through about sunrise with the temperature falling into the 50s by morning.

    Our Friday may start off with some sunshine, but clouds are thickening rapidly and there is an area of rain crossing New England from west to east. Rain could be briefly moderate for a time, west for the first part of the day, and east for the second part of the day and evening. Wind is coming from the southeast of the ocean, keeping temperatures mostly in the 60s.

    As showers end this evening the air will turn muggy, with temperatures holding in the 60s overnight. Fog and drizzle may develop especially near the shore early Saturday.

    With the breeze from the south at 10 to 20 mph the sky should brighten for things like the Parade Of Sail in Boston, and the multitude of graduations and weddings planned for Saturday afternoon.

    Temperatures well into the 70s except for at the coast where we hold in the 60s, a few spots make it to 80° where the sun comes out for a long enough time.

    A spot shower or thunderstorm is possible during the afternoon or evening, but most of us will remain rain free.

    It will be warm and muggy overnight Saturday night with a low temperature near 70° and the return of coastal fog.

    Father's Day likely starts off with clouds, but they should burn off for a partly to mostly sunny afternoon and the temperature jumping well into the 80s to 90° with high humidity. It's the most humid weather we've seen so far this season, so the chance for a shower or thunderstorm is still here for late Sunday.

    Showers and thunderstorms are likely on Monday and Monday night, perhaps with some damaging wind. That will be a front that should move offshore Tuesday afternoon breaking the spell of warm and humid weather for a couple of days the middle of next week.
