BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston set a new high temperature record Thursday, with temperatures surpassing 60 degrees in mid-February. More records could be ahead on Friday. But the region’s latest winter warmup won’t be sticking around into the weekend with cooler temperatures forecasted after a series of rain showers.

Temperatures in Boston reached 62 degrees by noontime Thursday, breaking the previous record of 60 degrees reached on February 16 in 1910 and 1882. Temperature records were also broken in Bedford, Beverly, Plymouth, Norwood, New Bedford, Martha’s Vineyard, Hyannis, and Chatham.

The warmest locations were spread across Southeast Mass., where temperatures rose above 65 degrees in some areas.

Rain showers are forecast to move through in the evening and overnight hours in New England Thursday. Isolated showers will continue into Friday, eventually giving way to more seasonable cooler weather by Friday night.
