Boston Weather: 41.0°F | Mostly Cloudy



Fair Weather to Continue

By Michael C. Morgan
staff meteorologist

The anticyclone that has provided the fine late summer weather for the region will slip offshore today - allowing winds to become more southwesterly. These southwest winds will bring back some mugginess and boost temperatures a bit. A weak cold front, crossing the area tonight, will produce a few scattered showers tonight and then skies should clear. The weekend looks mostly sunny and, for the most part, dry. Sharply cooler weather is indicated for the first half of next week.

Today: Partly cloudy and milder. High around 80F (27C). Winds southwest 1013 mph (1621 kph)

Tonight: Partly cloudy with a few showers possible. Winds becoming westerly by dawn. Low 64F (18C)

Friday: Clearing early and continued mild High around 80F (27C).

Saturday: Partly sunny and warm. High 8487F (2931C) Low 64F (18C).
