Boston Weather: 33.0°F | A Few Clouds

Weather: Showers all round

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

An unusually large cyclonic system is spread over eastern north America and slowly wheeling round as it drift off to the northwest today. Some lifting generated by midlevel disturbances should produce some widespread rain tonight and on into early Wednesday morning. As the pressure gradients associated with this system tighten, we can expect brisk southerly winds, although it will not feel quite as muggy as Monday. By Wednesday morning the skies will be clearing as high pressure builds over the region, bringing in cooler temperatures. On into the weekend, there is a threat of more inclement weather as a storm breaking away from another monster cyclone over the Pacific Northwest heads over in our direction.

Today: Becoming partly cloudy. Showers likely in the evening. Breezy, southerly winds. High 74F (23C).

Tonight: Showery, then clearing. Low 51F (11C).

Wednesday: Mostly sunny. Wind shift to northerly. High a brisk 62F (17C). Low 42F (6C).

Thursday: Clear and sunny. High around 65F (18C). Low around 45F (7C).
