The warm stretch will peak tomorrow, with highs topping out in the mid 60s in many areas, except much cooler over Cape Cod and the Islands. There could be some records set. Also, cannot rule out upper 60s in the Merrimack Valley of northeast MA.
Clouds and some showers will be the rule on Friday, but highs will still be in the mild 50s, except some upper 40s along the immediate east coast of MA.
Looking even further ahead, Saturday will be in the upper 50s to near 60s inland, but rain will become likely, especially in the late afternoon and evening, when there could also be a few rumbles of thunder.
Back to more normal temperatures Sunday through early next week.
