Boston Weather: 40.0°F | A Few Clouds and Breezy

Weather: Foreshadowing Autumn

By Chris E. Forest
STAFFMETEOROLOGIST

What should we expect for a pleasant week in September? Pretty much what we'll see for the next few days. As the transition to winter begins officially this Sunday, we can expect storm activity to increase soon. Luckily, it won't be happening just yet. We are caught on the ridge between two low-pressure systems for Tuesday and Wednesday and should expect pleasant weather with mostly sunny skies and light winds. To our west, the next system will develop and approach later in the week providing an interesting weekend outlook. We'll let the next forecaster take care of that one but we should expect some clouds in advance of the system late Wednesday and into Thursday.

Today: Clearing skies. High 75F (24C)

Tonight: Low 57F (14C)

Wednesday: Mostly sunny with high clouds advancing. High 74 F (23C). Low 59 F (15C)

Thursday: Partly cloudy and possible showers late. High 73F (23C). Low 56F (14C)
