Boston Weather: 62.0°F | Light Rain

Weather: Rained Out


Rained Out

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

Temperatures are set to rise somewhat as the warm sector of a low now centred in southern Canada passes over Boston on Thursday. There is however a downside: beginning early morning with the passage of the warm front, clouds will build up from the west during the day. The concomittant cold front looks to be strong and that means ahead of it there is a good chance of rain or even a thunderstorm from Thursday evening on into Friday morning. Tightening presure gradients will bring strong southwesterly winds of up to 20 mph (32 kph)during the day. In the outlook, things are shaping up to be rather pleasant - a large high pressure ridge will develop over the eastern US giving clear skies for the start of the labor day weekend.

Today: Winds strengthening and turning southerly. Scattered clouds early morning changing to overcast by evening. High 84F (29C).

Tonight: Good chance of rain and possibly a thunderstorm. High humidity. Low 64F (18C).
