Boston Weather: 53.0°F | Thunderstorm Rain Fog/Mist

Weather: Two Dark Days

By Bill Ramstrom
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- It’s not looking like a good weekend for those hoping to see a lot of sun. Saturday will be windy and rainy, while Sunday will feature clearing skies, but a sunset around 4:45 p.m., thanks to the end of daylight savings time.

A large storm is developing over the lower Midwest today, and will bring a period of heavy rain to Boston on Saturday. This will be followed by another cool airmass from Canada, keeping our temperatures at or below normal into next week.
