Boston Weather: 70.0°F | Partly Cloudy


Warm, but with a price

By Gerard Roe

The polar jet stream has moved further north in the past few days leaving most of the United States enjoying warmer weather and looking forward to less capricious conditions. However the Pacific jet stream looks sets to remain pointed at the north west coast this week meaning no immediate relief in sight for northern California. As for us, the flip side of the warmer conditions is the humidity. Light onshore flow will bring clouds and some fog and drizzle. In the extended forecast, a mid level trough moving strongly across from mid Canada may be expected to bring continued cloudiness and chances of showers.

Today: Warm but cloudy. Winds light and turning to from the east. High 49F (9C).

Tonight: Chance of drizzle and fog likely. Low 39F (4C).

Wednesday: Continued cloudy, with likliehood of drizzle in the morning. Some clearing likely in the afternoon. High 51F (10C). Low 41F (5C).

Thursday: Back to cloudy with chance of drizzle. High 52F (10C). Low 43F (6C)
