Boston Weather: 53.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: Fair Fall Flair

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

This weekend looks to be a perfect one to head north out of town and hightail it up to Vermont and Maine for peak foliage, or out west for apple picking. Cool, clear air will follow in behind a departing low, which will leave some residual high cloudiness in its wake today. The system will however move offshore by the early weekend, giving pleasant, sunny weather. The first sign of trouble is early next week with a tropical-like system progressing up the coast from the southern states.

Today: Cloudy early, leaving high clouds late. Moderate winds out of the northwest. High a seasonal 68F (20C). Low 52F (11C)

Saturday: Mostly sunny. High 66F (19C). Low 49F (9C)

Sunday: Continued pleasant. High around 65F(18C). Low around 50F (9C)
