Boston 25 Weather

Weather Alert: Less heat but still a stormy Friday


Friday’s weather will be characterized by a cold front slowly crossing from northeast to southwest today. This will keep the high heat away from eastern Mass, but it will also trigger scattered showers, downpours, and thunderstorms. That cooler air will help suppress the severe weather potential too, and the strongest storms with potential wind damage will be centered over western MA and CT where temperatures peak near 90 degrees again. Most of the activity will be focused in the mid-afternoon, but isolated showers are possible as soon as lunchtime.

Friday’s Zip Trip in Reading will stay dry, but we’ll need to be on the lookout for a shower or storm towards the end of the Celtics parade in Boston!


Humidity will briefly drop Friday night and Saturday before climbing to tropical territory again Sunday. We’ll have some showers and storms around over the weekend but it won’t be a washout. Saturday has the best chance for rain with a warm front nearby or overhead and those storm chances will peak during the second half of the day. Highs will be in the low 80s. Storm chances will also be greatest during the second half of Sunday, but the biggest difference will be highs pushing upper 80s in the afternoon. Get ready for another summer-like weekend!
