For The Rest Of Today: An area of high pressure will control our weather throughout the rest of today. This means that there will be plenty of sunshine around with light winds expected. High temperatures this afternoon will be between 60 and 65 Degrees.
Tonight: That high pressure system will begin to move to the east of New England and a warm front will begin to approach the area from the west. Skies this evening will be clear to partly cloudy with increasing clouds expected after midnight tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be between 35 and 39 Degrees.

Rain, Heavy At Times, Expected From Friday To Sunday: The end of this week and much of this weekend looks wet & is likely to be a wash-out as a prolonged rain event is expected. A very slowly moving frontal boundary is expected to impact southern New England. At the same time this is happening, an area of low pressure will slowly move across western Pennsylvania and western New York from Friday into Saturday and then depart into Quebec province on Sunday.
Widespread rain, which will be heavy at times, is expected to overspread Western and Central Mass by Friday afternoon and then continue through Friday night and all day Saturday. A period of very heavy rain is expected from late Friday night through Saturday morning.
On Saturday night, the steady rain will end, however, scattered showers are expected to persist through all of Saturday night and much of Sunday.
