After it took all weekend for warmth to arrive, cool air returned to Boston from the north and east at midweek and will reign into the weekend.

Dry air was successful in pushing a bank of low clouds, rain and drizzle to the south and west of the region. Areas from central New York state to much of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia were gray and misty Thursday.

With the sun out much of the day around Boston, temperatures will recover to the 60s on Thursday.

A disturbance will drop in from the northwest Friday afternoon into Saturday morning and may bring spotty showers and thunderstorms.
