Boston Weather: 68.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: By Efren Gutierrez

Staff Meteorologist -- After about a week of above normal temperatures, a break from the unseasonable heat is in sight. A system currently located in the Great Plains will move east and impact Boston on Saturday morning.

However, before the system arrives, dewpoints will rise, and today it will be hot and muggy.

The rain on Saturday will not be heavy, but just enough to give some needed rain to the area.

There is no other major weather event on the horizon for the weekend, but after the rain passes, temperatures will be cooler and closer to normal.
