Boston Weather: 41.0°F | Partly Cloudy

Weather: Cold Turkey

By Josh Bittker
night editor

Today: A high pressure system will dominate the east coast for much of the day. Clouds will move in later in the afternoon out of the west. High around 40F (4C) with winds out of the west from 10 to 15 mph(16 to 24 kph).

Tonight: Continued increasing cloudiness, with a 30 percent chance of snow showers overnight. Variable cloudiness into Wednesday morning. Low near 32F (0C).

Wednesday: Warmer as air moves up from the south ahead of a frontal system. A respite from the cold could cause problems for Turkey day, however. Mostly cloudy, high around 50F (10C).

Thanksgiving Day: As cool as the leftovers in the fridge. Temperatures will drop back down to seasonably colder levels. Overcast skies will dominate and snow showers are likely. High around 45F (7C), overnight lows around 30F (-1C).

The rest of the long weekend looks to be clearer and more pleasant, with highs near 50F (10C) for Friday and Saturday and partly sunny skies.
