Boston Weather: 42.0°F | Fair

Weather: Weather

High and Dry

By Peter Huybers and Greg Lawson
STAFF METEOROLOGISTS -- Through the largess of a high pressure zone abiding above Boston we should continue to experience fine weather over the next few days. Today;s high will be 76 °F (24°C) and tonight’s temperatures will drop to 60 °F (16°C). Light winds will blow from the east and low humidity will persist. Expect a clear day followed by a clear night with just a touch of high cirrus clouds topping things off.

Through Thursday and Friday, look for temperatures to mildly increase into the upper 70s and low 80s as the high pressure system over Boston moves to the east. Winds should remain light but switch from easterly to westerly. Continued clear skies will make for a comfortable week.

Hurricane Dennis continues to churn the seas to our southeast sending large waves to our shores and threatening the Carolinas. The only immediate impact is possible coastal erosion on our beaches.

Today: Sunny. Light easterly winds. High of 76°F (24°C).

Tonight: Clear. Winds shifting to southerly. Low of 60°F (16°C).

Tomorrow: Continued clear skies. Winds shifting to westerly.

High 81°F (27°C). Low 61°F (16°C).

Friday Outlook: More of the same, just warmer and a bit more

humid.
