Boston Weather: 37.0°F | A Few Clouds

Weather: By Efren Gutierrez and Greg Lawson


Another three day weekend is upon us, and it’s time to either catch up on sleep, go skiing, or just chill in Boston.

Before you make any plans, you may want to put them off until Saturday, because rain showers will be moving in from the south late Friday afternoon, lasting all through the night. Don’t despair, because by Saturday morning the clouds will move off to the east. A high currently situated in the Ohio Valley will build into the area, bringing with it clearer skies for Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Sunday will be quite chilly as compared to the previous days, because of the cold sinking air of the high pressure. Fair weather will last until President’s Day, when there is a slight possibility of light show showers.

If by any chance you’re going away from the New England area, do not head toward the Oregon coast. A small low pressure storm system from the Pacific will cause showers for most of the Pacific Northwest. Otherwise, most of the United States will be clear and sunny.
