This week will end on a cool, cloudy, and clammy note, as patches of unsettled weather cross New England during Friday and Saturday. Some additional energy is forecast to dive off shore early on Saturday, igniting a secondary development east of Cape Cod. While most of this system's moisture will be well out to sea by then, a raw and drizzly backlash will, unfortunately, be our lot for the beginning of the weekend. As these storms consolidate into a large cyclonic pool, swirling over the Canadian Maritimes, we shall get under a cool and dry northwesterly flow. Although not an ideal spring weather, this will be an improvement, with sunny intervals on offer for Sunday - just in time for Mother's Day. In the longer range, it looks like the last few days of classes will be a torture, with fairer skies and warmer temparatures.

Today: Cloudy and rainy, with a chance of heavier showers and widely scattered thunderstorms late. Quite cool with southeasterly winds, with highs only near 54F (12C).

Tonight: Showers early, followed by mostly cloudy conditions. Winds shifting to north. Low 46F (8C).

Saturday: Cloudy with periods of light rain early, tapering off to drizzle. Some breaks in overcast developing towards evening. High 52F (11C).

Sunday: Chilly start, with partly cloudy conditions giving way to patchwork of clouds and sun. Morning lows near 43F (6C) will rise to nearly seasonal levels of the low 60s (1618 C), with the help of strong May sunshine.
