Boston Weather: 40.0°F | Fair

Weather: An Ill Wind

By Nikki Prive
STAFF METEOROLOGIST

“A narrow wind complains all day

How some one treated him;

Nature, like us, is sometimes caught

Without her diadem.”

-- Emily Dickinson

The low pressure system which brought windy conditions to the Boston area yesterday will slowly move off into the Canadian Maritime region today. Winds will persist throughout the day, although not as strongly as on Thursday, with northwest winds near 20 to 30 miles per hour. The wind will die down late this evening with clearing skies allowing nighttime temperatures to fall to 20°F (-3°C). High pressure building over the Midwest will keep things dry but chilly tomorrow, with highs near 40°F (5°C). A weak disturbance developing over the Great Lakes will bring clouds but no precipitation on Sunday, with temperatures slowly warming to 50°F (12°C) by the beginning of next week.
