Boston Weather: 63.0°F | Partly Cloudy

Weather: Nasty November Weather

By Bill Ramstrom
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- While it is said that it never rains on Harvard’s graduation, the fans at this year's Harvard-Yale football game will not be so lucky. So, anyone planning a hack there should anticipate the weather and make sure the hack is waterproof. One storm system will pass offshore of Cape Cod today, while another will move in from the Ohio Valley tonight, moving close to Boston by early Saturday morning. This succession of storms will keep the weather cool and wet through much of Saturday. Seasonably cool air will move in for Sunday, with clear skies. On the plus side, it will not be as windy as last weekend, nor quite as chilly. This pattern of two unsettled weekends in a row indicates that there is an appreciable signal at about 7 days in the atmospheric power spectrum.
