Boston Weather: 42.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: Typical Fall


Typical Fall

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

Unseasonably strong cylones developing and riding along the jet stream sitting to the north of Boston characterize the current weather picture. As the most recent system slips off east today, descending air in its wake will give clearing skies. Warmer air will approach from the southwest tonight, giving perhaps a cloud or two. The warm air will hang around for Wednesday only. In the outlook, rain is beginning to look possible for Friday. Roxanne is hanging on in the gulf almost stationary. While it is not a threat currently to the U.S., Mexico continues to receive a lashing from the rains and storm surges associated with the system

Today: Clear and mostly sunny, but still staying brisk. Gusting winds from the west. High 61F (16C).

Tonight: More southerly winds and a few scattered clouds will keep temperatures up a bit. Low 49F (9C).

Wednesday: A mixture of sun and clouds. Southerly winds. High 68F (20C). Low 50F (10C).

Thursday: Cold front passing early. High 63F (16C). Low 46F (8C).
