Boston Weather: 76.0°F | Mostly Cloudy


Becoming Chilly

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

The warm front that brought with it one to two inches of rain across the area will move offshore and to the north by early Tuesday morning. As the associated low pressure moves away from us, large scale subsidence of the air mass will suppress cloud formation giving clearing skies in its wake. A deep tongue of Arctic air has dug into the middle of the country and as it drifts eastward we will see temperatures drop steadily through to Thursday. We can expect increasing cloudiness to accompany the approach of the cold front together with a slight chance of rain. Temperatures are predicted to be a little bit too high for any precipitation to fall as snow.

Today: Becoming cloudy. Wind from the northwest and moderate at 10-15 mph (16-24 kph). High 55F (13C).

Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Low 39F (4C).

Wednesday: Becoming colder. Mostly cloudy with a chance of rain. High 45F (7C). Low 32F (0C).

Thursday: Cold. High 38F (3C). Low 31F (-1C).
