Boston Weather: 59.0°F | A Few Clouds and Breezy

Weather: Spring Ahead on Sunday

By Veronique Bugnion
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- The daytime mixing between cooler air from the North and relatively humid air will give rise to scattered clouds this afternoon. This offshore northerly flow will continue into tonight, allowing temperatures to drop to the mid-30s.

The area of high pressure which will pass south of New England on Saturday will rule over our weather this weekend. The winds will take on a more southwesterly origin once the center of the high moves offshore on Sunday. This will allow temperatures to rise, bringing us very pleasant conditions. The extra hour of daylight should in fact allow us to see the sun set at 7:12 p.m. on Sunday evening.

A weak surface low will track just north of the border late Sunday, but conditions should remain mild and rain free until the arrival of a larger disturbance Tuesday or Wednesday.
