Boston Weather: 75.0°F | Fog/Mist

Weather: wither?



By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

Wednesday is set for fair again with a broad ridge over the eastern half of the country giving clear sunny skies. Thursday is more problematic. Currently it looks as though we will escape bad weather again as a large low passes just to our north, bringing clouds over us with the associated frontal passages, but no rain. In any event, skies will cloud up by evening and winds shifting to the south will push the temperature up over 80F (27C) during the day. In the Atlantic, there are four named storms concurrent - a rare occurrence, and the forecast of trajectories may become even harder with their mutual interaction.

Today: Sunny and clear. Winds from the northwest and moderate at around 10 mph (16 kph). High 77F (25C)

Tonight: Starry skies. Strong radiational cooling giving a low of 59F (15C).
