Tomorrow night: Clear skies and calm winds allow temperatures to drop fairly quickly. Lows bottom out in the upper 30s to mid-40s (downtown). Confidence: High

A look ahead

Saturday should warm up nicely with another sunny start, but clouds are likely to start increasing by the afternoon. If they do not arrive too early, highs in the mid-60s should be a cinch. Winds remain light. Cloudy skies overnight slow the cooling but still fall to the low to mid-40s. Confidence: Medium-High

Clouds are likely to dominate much of Sunday. High pressure over New England could push a little cooler air into the region, too. Highs drop back to the mid- to upper 50s but are still seasonable for the date. A stray shower is possible overnight but not likely. Lows hold in the low to mid-40s. Confidence: Medium

Monday is likely to remain mostly cloudy, and a few showers can’t be ruled out but should be light and scattered. Highs reach the upper 50s and, with a little more midday sun, could sneak into the lower 60s. Confidence: Low-Medium
