Several Hundred Degrees In Killian Court

By Michael C. Morgan and Gerard H. Roe
Staff Meteorologists

The forest of graduating students, nattily attired in their robes, will not be needing Johnson Athletic Center for Commencement ceremonies. While precipitation is not anticipated to mar the day, some cloudiness will gradually overspread the area especially towards evening. A weakening cold front approaching from the northwest will increase the likelihood of showers late tonight and early Saturday. The weak front will remain in southern New England through the weekend. As a result, clouds and a few showers are a possibility. Somewhat cooler weather, especially along the immediate coast (due to a sea breeze) is also anticipated.

This morning: Partly cloudy and warm. Wind southwest 1015 mph (1624 kph). Temperature at 10:00 a.m.: 77F (25C).

This afternoon: Slowly increasing clouds. Warm. High 84F (29C). Wind southwest 10-15 mph (1624 kph). Temperature at 2:00p.m.: 81F (27C).

This evening: Partly to mostly cloudy with showers possible late. A bit muggier. Patchy fog developing. Low 64F (18C).

Saturday: Any showers ending during the morning, then partly cloudy and cooler. Temperatures reaching the middle and upper 70s (26C) early in the day but falling back to the lower 60s (17C) in near shore regions. Winds northwest 10 mph (16 kph) shifting to northeast along the coast during the afternoon.

Sunday: Partly sunny with scattered showers possible. High 7478F (2326 C). Low around 60F (16C).
