Pattern of rainy weekdays, nice weekends to continue

After letting up for a warm, sunny weekend, rain will return to Cambridge today and tomorrow. While unfortunate for those who wish to enjoy the outdoors, the rain should help ease the drought conditions that plague part of every state on the Atlantic seaboard. Drought combined with record high temperatures are also taking a toll on the Southwest, where wildfires have already forced evacuations in Arizona, and many other regions sit at high fire risk.

Looking toward the weekend, expect a return of clear skies and pleasant weather just in time to enjoy the Friday with no classes.
