Boston Weather: 83.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: Weekend Will Be Cold, Crisp

By Roberto F. Rondanelli
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- After a wet first week of November, our umbrellas can take a well-deserved rest during the next few days. As the low pressure system responsible for the rainy weather moves out over the Atlantic, a high pressure system will take over most of the eastern half of the country.

As a consequence, the weather will be drier and colder for the weekend. Some freezing temperatures are expected, especially Saturday night, when temperatures in the Boston area will plummet to the mid-20’s.

For those of you still anxiously awaiting the “Indian summer,” maybe it’s time to face reality. At this point, we are on the road of no return towards the winter. Hopefully, though, this year’s snowy season will be a more “climatological” winter than the last year’s. In the meantime, there is no sign of the first measurable snowfall appears in the forecast horizon.
