Boston Weather: 39.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: Milder Weather Ahead

By Bill Ramstrom
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- After the unseasonably chilly start to the week, and the close-but-no-cigar snow for Wednesday, we are in store for some warmer weather for the upcoming weekend. Unfortunately, as is often the case in winter, with the warmer weather will come clouds and some rain showers. Longer range forecasts show a return to cooler conditions toward the latter half of next week.

A developing low-pressure system over the Midwest will advance northward over the weekend, leaving us on the warm side of its counterclockwise circulation. Some upper-level energy will pass over New England during Saturday night and Sunday, bringing a chance for showers with it. Before then, we can expect some slightly above normal temperatures and at least partly sunny skies
