Boston Weather: 55.0°F | Overcast

Weather: Winter Weather Still Absent

By Bill Ramstrom
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- A fast-moving series of small disturbances will keep our weather quite changeable over the next several days. In the near-term, there does not seem to be a prospect of a large snowstorm nor a cold outbreak.

Today, a high pressure system will be covering most of the eastern US, pushing yesterday's mixed bag of clouds and precipitation out over the Canadian Maritimes. Another weak storm will more across northern New England during Thursday; this will keep us on the warmer side of the storm so that precipitation will change over to rain. Fair weather will then settle in for Friday and most of Saturday.

Today: Becoming partly cloudy. High 40F (4C).
