mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will warm to near seasonable
levels with readings this afternoon ranging in the 40s. But then as
an upper level disturbance moves overhead this afternoon, there is
the risk for scattered rain showers.

For tonight it will become mostly clear, except for mid and outer
Cape Cod where low clouds will hang tough. Temperatures will cool
into the mid 20s to low 30s.

North northwesterly winds will continue on Saturday under increasing
clouds. Temperatures will be cooler and only top out in the mid 30s
to low 40s. Another approaching upper level disturbance will produce
scattered rain and snow showers in the afternoon.

The Canadian high will shift east Saturday night and Sunday yielding
northeast winds across our region. This onshore flow will produce
cool temperatures and scattered rain showers across much of eastern
Massachusetts. Temperatures Sunday morning will range from the mid
20s to low 30s, and highs on Sunday in the mid 30s to low 40s.

will be cool on Monday but seasonable on Tuesday. A warming trend
