Boston Weather: 53.0°F | A Few Clouds

Weather: Weekend Weather

By Nikki Prive
STAFF METEOROLOGIST --

Yet one smile more, departing, distant sun!

One mellow smile through the soft vapory air,

Ere, o’er the frozen earth, the loud winds run,

Or snows are sifted o’er the meadows bare.

-- William Cullen Bryant

Daytime temperatures may reach 60°F today, but clear skies tonight will result in radiational cooling and a drop into the 30s overnight. A low pressure system will cross the Great Lakes region on Saturday, bringing increased clouds to Boston with a slight chance of sprinkles. Temperatures will struggle to reach 50°F on Saturday, and will remain in the 40s on Sunday. A warm front is expected to cross into southern New England late on Sunday, bringing a warm-up for the beginning of next week.
