Boston Weather: 62.0°F | Overcast



Wild Weather Bewilders

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

The weather continues to make almost no sense as wild variations persist. After a low of 16F on Monday morning temperatures on Tuesday are expected to reach into the low 50s as a warm front sweeps past us. A high pressure to the northwest combined with a low pressure system developing to the south will create easterly winds at the surface. This positions moisture right over us. The rising air associated with the front will therefore mean rain throughout Tuesday. The clouds will remain Wednesday and into Thursday giving continued likelihood of rain or wet snow. A ray of hope on the horizon - expect some clearing toward the weekend.

Today: Rain probable throughout the early part of the day. Possibly continuing into the evening. Up to an inch is possible. High 51F (10C).

Tonight: Chance of rain. Cloudy. Low 34F (1C).

Wednesday: Cloudy and a chance of rain and/or snow. High 45F (7C). Low 34F (1C).

Thursday: Much as Wednesday, but with some clearing. High 41F (5C). Low 29F (-1C).
