Boston Weather: 49.0°F | Overcast

Weather: Autumnal Angst

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

The large scale features of the current weather situation will be rather static over the next few days, but a few smaller scale events promise an unsettled picture as we head through the weekend. With a large high pressure to the west and a quasi-stationary cyclone to the west of Newfoundland, the resulting circulation spreads cold northerly air over the region. We will be lucky to see 60F (16C) for a high. Today will be rather pleasant though with the sun making an appearance for the first time in a while. Saturday promises some cloudiness as the northern edge of an upper air system brushes by us on its way east. In the longer term, precipitation threatens on Sunday evening as a storm predicted to develop off the East Florida coast in the next couple of days begins to head in our direction.

Today: Sunny. Winds from the north at 10-15 mph (16-24 kph). High 60F (16C)

Tonight: Mostly clear, and cool. Low 41F (5C)

Saturday: Partly cloudy winds dropping a little. High 55F (13C). Low 41F (5C)

Sunday: Chance of rain especially later in the day. High around 55F (13C). Low around 40F (5C)
