STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- An area of high pressure will gradually settle over New England during the next few days; it will not be dislodged until after the weekend is over. Clouds will disappear on Wednesday as the wind shifts from a southeasterly source over the ocean to the Southwest. Temperatures will begin to climb on Thursday as colder air retreats to the North and a southwesterly flow of warm air sets in.

Meanwhile, the storms that are drenching California move across Nevada and Utah, before reforming east of the Rockies and being lifted through the central plains and the Great Lakes. They will not be affecting the weather in New England.

Today: High of 38°F (3°C). Scattered clouds.

Tonight: Low in the mid-20s (-4°C).

Wednesday: Clearing, High of 44°F (6°C). Low in the mid-twenties.

Thursday: High in the upper 40s or lower 50s (10°C).

Beyond: Sunny and unseasonably warm.
