Warm weather will continue around the Boston area into the weekend.
A zone of high pressure will continue to hover around the Atlantic Seaboard keeping the atmosphere dry enough to prevent rain from developing in place or keep it from moving in from the west through Thursday.
A weak system will try to produce spotty showers around New England Friday. As a result there is the chance of a bit of rain for game one of the series at Fenway Park.
Aside from the isolated shower activity Friday, the weather pattern will be very favorable for outdoor plans and construction projects. Through Sunday, highs will generally be in the 70s with lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
It may not be until early next week when a cold front from the Midwest and perhaps a tropical system from the Gulf of Mexico combine forces to bring the next chance of soaking, general rain to the Boston area and much of the Atlantic Seaboard.
Until then, temperatures will continue to average above normal.
Unsettled weather in Atlanta will continue into this week, with the chance of thunderstorms remaining for the area through Tuesday.
