Metro Boston, North Shore and Metro West: After a couple of sub par days on Wednesday and Thursday we recovered back to more seasonal conditions Friday. Temperatures climbed into the 70s with a changeable sky from partly to at times mostly cloudy.
With the weekend here we have nothing but pleasant weather ahead as high pressure takes control. Summer like warmth can be expected, especially for you folks that are away from the coast, with high temperatures soaring into the 80s both days through the interior.
For Saturday local sea breezes will keep the temperatures in the 70s along the coast. Bright sunny skies early are expected to give way to partly cloudy skies by late morning and through the afternoon. Winds are light.
Whatever clouds are around Saturday afternoon will melt away by evening and Saturday night looks to be mainly clear and pleasant with the low temperatures ranging from 55 to 60 degrees.
Sunday, more of the same is on tap. Warmest inland with highs in the 80s and coolest along the beaches with the temperatures in the 70s. It will likely be a sunnier day than Saturday and winds will be light once again. Just a spectacular day for any outdoor activity.
By Sunday night some clouds begin to show up on the western horizon. This will be the first signs of an approaching front and low pressure system to our west. Expect partly cloudy skies and a mild night with the lows in the low 60s. Winds turn southwest around 5 mph.
The work week begins dry on Monday but with the unsettled weather to our west there is a chance of showers spilling into the area Tuesday. Generally a partly cloudy day on Monday, highs 75 to 80. Becoming mostly cloudy overnight. Lows 60 to 65.
Tuesday, chance of showers. Highs in the low 70s.
Weekend beach outlook for the North Shore:
Saturday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the low 70s Cape Ann north, mid 70s south of Cape Ann. Light and variable winds early, becoming onshore in the afternoon.
Sunday: Mostly sunny and pleasant. Highs in the mid to upper 70s. Light southeast winds.
Expect a chill if you go in the Atlantic Ocean as water temperatures are in the mid 50s. The UV Index will be high at 8+. Seas only running at 1 to 2 feet.
