Plain Sailing

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

A couple of beautiful day are coming up. The remnants of tropical storm Jerry to the south of us and a high pressure system departing to our north and east combine to generate cool winds off the ocean, but with low moisture levels, skies are set to remain clear and bright. The only weather action in the area is limited to northern New England where the progression of a weak cold front may produce a shower or two. For Wednesday, winds will turn to the north, again keeping temperatures down to the mid-70s (21C). In the outlook, we may yet see some rain toward the end of the week due to a large low currently developing in western Canada.

Today: Mostly sunny with perhaps some scattered clouds late morning or early afternoon. Light southeast winds at 5 to 10 mph (8 to 16 kph). High 73F (23C).

Tonight: Mostly clear. Light winds. Low 58F (15C).
