Boston Weather: 22.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: Super Weather for the Weekend

By Michael J. Ring
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- It's too bad the National Football League doesn't schedule the Super Bowl for a participant's home stadium, because either Boston or Philadelphia would have been a fine host as clear, milder weather settles across most of the country this weekend.

Although a weak low pressure system did give us a period of rain showers last night, the skies are clear in its wake across virtually the entire country. The only marks of unsettled weather across the contiguous United States today are a cold front pushing into Washington State and a low pressure system over Ontario which may bring flurries to the far upper Midwest.

And as for the weather in Jacksonville this Sunday? It will be mostly cloudy with a daytime high in the mid-60s F, with temperatures near 60°F for most of the game.

Weekend Outlook:

Today: Cloudy with a few lingering sprinkles. High near 40°F (6°C).

Tonight: Clearing and not too cold. Low near 28°F (-3°C).

Tomorrow: Clear with a high near 40°F (6°C).

Tomorrow night: Partly cloudy, with a low near 30°F (-1°C).

Sunday: Partly cloudy. High near 42°F (7°C); low near 30°F (-1°C).

Monday: Continued partly cloudy, with a high near 42°F (7°C).
