Weather: The Aftermath

The Aftermath

Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

As the nasty nor'easter pulls away into the Western Atlantic, Friday's clearing skies will herald a period of more tranquil and seasonal weather. A high pressure system from southeast Canada will slowly settle over the northeastern section of the US for several days. By late Saturday, a backdoor cold front will send a reinforcing shot of colder air, but no precipitation is expected with this event. Thus, for the first weekend of Spring term, all kinds of celebrations, festivities, banquets and mid-winter outdoor plans receive a fair forecast of thumbs up!

Today: Breaking clouds. Becoming partly to mostly sunny in the afternoon. High near 40 F (5 C) with diminishing northerly winds.

Tonight: Clear and cooler, with lows in the mid 20s (4 C) or high 20s (2 C) near the shore and in the city.

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny and seasonable, with highs in the low 40s (56 C). A few clouds will drift in from the north in late afternoon as light winds drift into northeast.

Tomorrow night: Partly cloudy, with some flurries possible in Northern New England. Turning colder late at night, with lows in the low 20s (6 to 5 C).

Sunday: Fair and cooler. Highs in mid to upper 30s (23 C), lows in the low 20s (6 to 5 C).
