Boston Weather: 37.0°F | Fair

Weather: September Solace

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

Salubrious summer weather will stay around for yet another weekend - summer's last - as a high pressure system slowly drifts off the New England coast over the next few days. Unsettled, tropical downpours will remain in the Southeast and the Gulf Coast regions, and a low will develop near the Carolina Capes by early Saturday. Fortunately for us, we will remain between the wet weather to our south and a low pressure system, slowly moving out of central Canada. In the longer range, some precipitation early next week will be followed by more fair and cooler weather around the middle of next week. In the meantime, on the back of our fair weather system departing into the Western Atlantic, a warming trend with some clouds now and then will be ours to savor.

Friday: Partly to mostly sunny and pleasant, with highs about 68F (20C) and light onshore winds.

Friday night: Mostly clear and seasonable. Low 56F (13C).

Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny and warmer. High about 80F (27C).

Sunday outlook: Quite warm and becoming more humid, with clouds increasing late in the day. Highs in the low 80s (27-28C), lows in the low to mid 60s (16-18C).
