Boston Weather: 60.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: Farewell

Fair-well!

By Marek Zebrowski
staff meteorologist

As the offshore storm moves slowly from Cape Cod Bay towards the Bay of Fundy during Friday, its rain shield will also gradually pull northward, and the strong winds will subside. Wholesale clearing, however, is not expected right away. A cold front from Central Canada will surge southward, moving off the New England coast by Saturday morning. A cold high pressure will then settle over the Northeast, giving us a weekend fare of fair skies and cool nights, with a warming trend foreseen for early next week.

Today: Rain tapering off during the morning, but remaining cloudy and damp. A chance of a few breaks in the clouds before sunset. High 58F (14C).

Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a chance of a sprinkle towards dawn. Low near 50F (10C).

Saturday: Breaking clouds in the morning, then partly to mostly sunny and seasonable. Moderate northwesterly winds. High 64F (18C).

Saturday night: Clear and cool. Lows in the mid 40s (68C).

Sunday outlook: Fair, with highs in the low 60s (1617C), and lows in the mid 40s (68C).
