Boston to Miss Out on Summerlike Warmth This Week

Summerlike warmth will move into parts of the mid-Atlantic Thursday and Friday, but it will hold southwest of New England and the Boston area for the most part.

As warmth begins to bulge northward later in the week, the risk of cloudy, damp and cooler weather will increase along the New England coast.

A flow off the Atlantic Ocean is likely to set up Thursday and continue on Friday.

It will not be until after a storm system moves in from the Plains this weekend before temperatures make a run into the 70s.

Along with the warmth will come the potential for some rain and thunderstorms. As long as that system keeps moving, enough dry air in its wake may salvage Mother's Day with some sunshine.
