Following several days of hot and humid weather, Boston will see the return of more seasonable temperatures and some sunshine to close out the week.
Cooler, less humid conditions will continue through the weekend for the city with abundant sunshine on both Saturday and Sunday.
This change from hot, humid weather is all thanks to a cold front that will swing through New England early Friday morning, ushering in cooler, less humid air from Canada.
High pressure building in behind this front will lock these conditions in place over the region until it shifts to the east early next week.
With dry weather in the forecast, Boston will see a settled weekend for sporting events, concerts and other outdoor activities.
Tourists visiting the city will experience more comfortable temperatures following three consecutive days where the high temperature made a run toward 90 degrees.
Those attending events at Gillette Stadium this weekend, such as the Kenny Chesney concert on Saturday or the New England Revolutions game on Sunday, will not have to worry about packing that umbrella, but should perhaps bring sunscreen instead.
A storm system approaching from the Great Lakes early next week will bring an end to the sunny, dry weather as well as the next chance for showers and storms.
