Boston Weather: 64.0°F | Overcast

Weather: By Eric Plosky

SENIOR EDITOR -- When you’re greeted by mist in the morning, and temperatures no longer plunge at night, you know it’s summer. That time has once again arrived here in Beantown.

The typical summer weather we’ve been experiencing lately -- perfectly exemplified yesterday, the Day of Heat and Humidity -- looks set to continue over the weekend.

It will continue to be hot, humid and hazy; daytime highs will be in the 80s F (28-30°C) and could even hit 90°F (32°C) today. No relief is in sight; even the showers and thunderstorms that may develop later on Sunday likely won’t break nighttime temperatures in the high 60s F (18-20°C).

Today: Fog in the morning followed by summer sun and haze; the wind may pick up a bit. High approaching 90°F (32°C).

Tonight: Cloudy and turning foggy again; not much cooler. Low 67°F (19°C).

Saturday: Early fog and then -- you guessed it -- hazy sun. High 85°F (29°C).

Saturday Night: Humid once again; possible rain. Low, a steamy 67°F (19°C).

Sunday: Rain finally arrives -- possibly thunderstorms. High 77°F (25°C).
