Weather: Scattered Rain Brings More Pain

By Annie S. Choi
ARTS EDITOR -- After a few days of heat and humidity, scattered thunderstorms hit the area today and tomorrow. Despite the precipitation, temperatures and humidity will still loom above a comfortable level, leaving people’s deodorants working overtime (or not working at all). Just be thankful you’re in Cambridge and not in Phoenix, where temperatures will soar to 102° this afternoon. Showers will begin this afternoon, and will continue sporadically tonight. Temperatures will fall from today’s highs in the upper 70s to the low 60s tonight. Tomorrow will bring more of the same, albeit a few degrees cooler, as Cambridge will encounter scattered showers and high temperatures in the mid 70s. The weekend looks positively gorgeous with milder temperatures in the low-to-mid 70s and sunshine. Weekend looks rain-free, which will surely make outdoor R/O activities favorable.

Today: Expect scattered showers this afternoon. A mild, welcome 10 mph breeze will blow from the southwest this morning. This afternoon will bring a high of 79°.

Tonight: Cooler temperatures with a low of 59° and a 60% chance of precipitation.

Friday: With a 30% chance of rain in the morning, the afternoon will bring sunshine and a high of 75°.
