Boston Weather: 51.0°F | Partly Cloudy

Weather: Flurries and then Some Clouds

By Roberto Rondanelli
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- A relatively weak low pressure is making its way towards our area and some precipitation is expected for today. Although temperatures will remain over 0°C it is likely that we will have some flurries. In any case do not expect a recreation of the snowstorm of mid November. After the passage of the low pressure, relatively colder air will take over the region and temperatures during Saturday will remain mostly in the 30s. Saturday night looks particularly cold. The rest of the forecast period appears dry, although Monday evening through Tuesday has to be watched carefully. At the time of this forecast, an active storm is depicted in some of the numerical weather prediction models. If this system keeps its strength over the next days, it can bring a few inches of rain over our region. Stay tuned for Tuesday forecast.
