Boston Weather: 21.0°F | Overcast


Turning Colder

Forecast by Michael Morgan
staff meteorologist

Temperatures will trend downward over the next several days as disturbances embedded in a rather strong autumn jet stream move through the area. With the passage of each disturbance, we'll observe a few clouds, the risk of an afternoon shower, and the day time maximum temperature a few degrees colder than the preceeding day. By Thursday, it will be cold enough in the higher terrain of New England for the first snow showers of the season. Below normal temperatures are expected into the weekend.

Today: Partly cloudy early with increasing afternoon clouds. Winds west 10-20 mph (16-32 kph). High 70F (21C).

Tonight: Clearing, breezy, and cooler. Low 50F (10C).

Wednesday: Sunny early with the risk of a late afternoon rain shower. High 65F (18C). Low 50F (10C).

Thurday: Clouds and sun with a rain shower possible. Turning colder. High 58F (14C). Low 43F (6C).
