Boston Weather: 42.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: By Peter Huygens and Robert Korty

Staff Meterologists -- This is going to be a cool, cloudy, and perhaps rainy weekend. Look for highs to reach 59ºF today and lows to descend to 43ºF tonight. Clouds will continue to gather today and there is a 60% chance of rain tonight. The weekend will provide much of the same. Temperatures will reach the low 50s in the day and drop to the low 40s at night. Skies will remain partly cloudy through Monday with an 80% chance of rain on Saturday and 40% chance on Sunday.

The reason for the rain and the excuse for the uncertainty lies on two fronts. Today we have a cold front moving across the great lakes towards us as low pressure off the Carolina Coast lifts northward. The cold front will pass us on Saturday, but another front, moving in from Canada on Sunday, should keep our weather tumultuous. Bottom line is keep an umbrella and a jacket with you.
