Boston Weather: 49.0°F | Partly Cloudy and Breezy


Finally, Some Quiet Weather

By Michael J. Ring

While the Gulf Coast region will unfortunately feel the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina for months, the storm’s remnants have now fully lost their tropical characteristics. Katrina’s remains, bringing rain to Quebec today, will slide over the Atlantic Ocean tomorrow. While hurricane season extends for three more months, there are no other tropical systems posing threats to land at this time.

Most of the United States will enjoy quiet weather over the next few days as Katrina’s remains move out to sea. Aside from a few showers in the Northwest, Midwest, and Gulf Coast areas, clear skies will rule the country for the rest of the week.

Extended Forecast:

Today: Clearing skies, with a high near 83 F (28 C).

Tonight: Clear and mild. Low near 66 F (19 C).

Friday: Clear and warm, with highs again near 83 F (28 C). Low near 65 F (18 C).

Saturday: Partly cloudy and slightly cooler. High near 78 F (26 C). Low near 62 F (17 C).

Sunday: Clear but still cooler; high near 72 F (22 C).
