    It's officially a heat wave in Boston, as temperatures hit 90 degrees for the third straight day on Friday.

    It's one of the earliest heat waves in the city's history. The earliest ever was from May 2 to May 4 in 2001.

    Temperatures are starting to drop, as a cold front filters in, and pleasant, spring-like weather is expected this weekend.

    A few storms are expected to pop-up this evening from 4 to 6 p.m. for the southern coast of Connecticut, Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.

    After that, though, we settle comfortably into the weekend as high pressure dominates, bringing sunshine and seasonable temperatures.

    For the extended outlook, late Sunday night into early Monday brings the next round of showers to the area, with most of the rest of the week into the upper 60s with more rain chances by the second half of the week.
