Boston Weather: 57.0°F | Partly Cloudy

Weather: Tranquil Weekend

By Bill Ramstrom
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- This weekend looks to be fair and pleasant -- perfect weather for traveling. A large high pressure system will slowly move across the Great Lakes and the mid-Atlantic states between now and Sunday, producing fair, cool conditions through the weekend. A slow moving storm currently in northern Texas will gather moisture from the Gulf of Mexico as it approaches our area for Monday. Unfortunately, long-range models are projecting that the unsettled weather may stick around into Wednesday. Thus, it will be a good week to be away from Cambridge, perhaps dozing on a warm beach or hitting the ski slopes.

Today: Sunny and windy. High 45°F (7°C).

Tonight: Cool and clear. Low 31°F (-1°C).

Saturday: Sunny with lighter winds. High 48°F (9°C).

Saturday Night: Cool. Low 31°F (-1°C).

Sunday: Few high clouds. High 49°F (9°C).

Monday: Chance of showers. High 45°F (7°C).
