Weather - Easy Ride


Easy Ride

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

A few more days of quiet and essentially dry weather are expected. An arctic front will approach Friday but with limited amounts of moisture and only partly cloudy skies and stray flurries are on offer. Cold air, settling in for Saturday and the weekend, will also block a southern stream storm from advancing up the East Coast. The next potentially significant weather event is scheduled for late Tuesday, when a lot of moisture will be available as a new storm tracks northeastward from the Gulf.

Today: Mostly sunny early, then becoming partly to mostly cloudy by sunset. Turning colder after a midday high of 42F (5C). Westerly winds will turn towards northwest by evening.

Tonight: Partly cloudy and colder, with a low of 25F (-4C) in town, high teens (-8 to -7C) inland.

Saturday: Wintry sunshine, filtered through high, thin overcast. Lower clouds with flurries may drift into onshore locations from Boston southward to the Cape. Colder highs near 34F (1C) with light northeast breezes.

Saturday night: Clearing and colder, with lows in the low 20s (-6 to -5C) in town, mid teens (-10 to -8C) inland.

Sunday outlook: Fair and seasonable, with lows in the low 20s (-6 to -5C). High temperatures will approach 40F (4C).
