Boston Weather: 37.0°F | A Few Clouds



Near Perfect

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

With the passage of a cold front yesterday, we are left with dry northwesterly winds diminishing in strength in contrast to yesterday's blusteriness. Over the weekend, as a region of high pressure fills in behind a departing low, winds will turn round to southerly raising maximum temperatures above 80F (27C), accompanied by mostly clear skies and reasonably low humidity.

Out in the Atlantic, Jerry has moved into the gulf of Mexico and may strengthen a little. Iris is beginning to show some signs of weakening but it is in its early days yet, and Humberto is still roaring in mid-Atlantic with wind gusts topping 125 mph.

Today: Clear skies, with winds brisk in morning settling down later. High 75F (24C).

Tonight: Winds moving round to the west. Clear and light winds. Low 61F (16C).
