Boston Weather: 34.0°F | Mostly Cloudy



Drizzle and fog

By Gerard Roe

Early last Friday morning, the accumulated snowfall at Logan Airport exceeded one hundred inches - the first time this has happened since records began, and besting the previous record (two years ago) by over four inches.

The fish in the western North Atlantic are suffering mightily as a powerful cyclone sweeps northward about 600 miles to our east. We will experience the western edge of the system and should escape with only cloudiness and light drizzle. Clouds will increase during the afternoon with the winds blowing out of the northeast.

Drizzle is a possibilty Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning with coastal areas likely to see fog. The chance of rain receeds through Wednesday with Thursday set for mild weather.

Tuesday: Some sun early, then becoming cloudy by afternoon. A northeast wind at 15 to 20 mph (24 to 32 kph). High 43F (6C).

Tuesday night: Cloudy with fog drizzle in areas. Low 25F (-4C).

Wednesday: Drizzle early morning. Windy and cloudy. High 44F (7C). Low 34F (1C).

Thursday: Fair and mild. High 54F (12C). Low 37F (3C).
