As cold air blasts into the West and spreads into the Central states, warmth will build in the East, bringing above-average temperatures to the Boston area this week.

High temperatures will be in the 50s on Thursday and Friday.

Folks attending the tree lighting festivities at Boston Common Thursday will not have to face harsh weather conditions and mid-January RealFeel® temperatures.

Spotty showers are in the offing Thursday.

However, it could get rather wet at times Friday with the potential for travel delays as a storm moves up from the South Central states.

It will turn colder over the weekend but odds are against significant snow or ice at the tail end of the rain late Friday night into Saturday morning in Boston.

Another storm moving in from the South Central states could bring a wintry mix to part of the area late in the weekend.
