Boston Weather: 56.0°F | Overcast

Weather: Cold and Bright

By Bill Ramstrom
Staff Meteorologist

We will start off today with sunny skies, but high clouds will begin to move in later in the day as a storm in the upper Midwest moves eastward. This storm will pass off to our north up the St. Lawrence valley during Thursday and Thursday night, bringing us a chance of some sprinkles or flurries. A trailing cold front from this storm will extend into the lower Mississippi valley, where a new storm system will begin to develop late Thursday. The final track of this storm will decide our weather for the weekend.

Today: Sunny and pleasant; few clouds afternoon. High 42F (6C).

Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Low 25F (3C).

Thursday: Colder with clouds and a chance of snow flurries late. High 32F (0C).

Thursday Night: Becoming mostly cloudy. Low 28F (2C).

Friday: Cloudy and raw, with some rain. Could start as a period of snow. High 37F (2C).

Outlook for the weekend: Rain early, becoming much colder by Sunday.
