Boston Weather: 49.0°F | Partly Cloudy

Cool and Cloudy

By Robert Korty
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- After several nice (but very dry) weeks of warm weather, below normal temperatures have returned to Boston for this week.

An area of low pressure off of the Massachusetts coast will continue to slowly drop to the south today before moving out to sea tonight. The proximity of this storm will keep it cool and cloudy across the region today; showers are possible along the coast especially toward evening and overnight. While temperatures will remain cool through mid-week, it doesn’t look like there’s a great chance of rain for the rest of the week.

Temperatures should rebound by the weekend to make for a return to mild weather.
