After showers today, a crisp, dry week

Clouds and showers are expected today, then a cold front is expected to usher in mostly dry conditions and high temperatures in the 60s and 70s through much of the week.

“The bulk of today’s showers will fall in the east, but they are going to be light,” said Charlie Foley, Weather Service meteorologist. “Beyond that, we will have a cool, dry Canadian airmass that will be with us until Thursday.”

Rain is possible until about 11 p.m., but no heavy rain is expected. Skies will clear up tonight, and temperatures will drop into the mid-30s overnight in Northwestern Massachusetts, prompting a frost advisory from 2 a.m. Tuesday until around 8 a.m. Temperatures in the metro area overnight will drop into the mid-40s, according to the Weather Service.

Dry weather will continue Tuesday, and conditions will remain chilly in the morning. Temperatures will rise into the low 60s by midday, and sunshine will prevail through the day. A sea breeze will develop along the coast in the afternoon, moderating temperatures slightly, according to the Weather Service.

Dry conditions will continue Wednesday, with sunny skies and temperatures near 70. These pleasant, fall-like conditions will continue Thursday and remain through at least Saturday. A few spot showers are possible Friday night as a warm front moves through the region, but beyond that, no other rain is likely until Sunday.
