Boston Weather: 53.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: Summer Again!

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

Milder weather will return for the end of the week and for the first part of this weekend as the northwesterly flow turns to southwest in the wake of a departing East Coast trough. Summer weather will continue everywhere east of the Rockies. Coastal areas of Texas will be drenched by rains associated with a weak hurricane, Francis, which is likely to make a landfall early Friday between Galveston and Corpus Christi. A cold front approaching on Saturday is likely to bring scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms for central and northern New England, but afterwards for Sunday and Monday another refreshing spell of fair weather is to be expected.

Friday: Mostly sunny and milder. High 78F (25C) with pleasantly warm westerly breezes.

Friday night: Clear and comfortable, with some high clouds advancing towards daybreak. Low 63F (17C)

Saturday: Some early sunshine followed by increasing clouds. Chance of afternoon showers. Mild, with highs in the mid to upper 70s (25-26C)

Sunday outlook: Partly sunny and pleasant. Highs near 70F (21C) and lows in mid to upper 50s (13-15C)
