Boston Weather: 48.0°F | Partly Cloudy


Cold and Quiet

By Michael J. Ring

Monotonous weather is in store for the next few days, as the cold, dry weather we have experienced over the past several days stretches into next week.

The most prominent meteorological feature over the North American continent today is the strong high pressure system over Manitoba. Consequently, most of the country will enjoy clear weather for the next few days. The only regions of unsettled weather are a front moving into the Pacific Coast and a storm currently off the Carolinas. While we should see some clouds tomorrow from this storm, the precipitation should stay offshore.

In the meantime, no other precipitation is expected, and high temperatures will hover near 40�F each day — about 7 degrees colder than the climatological mean for this time of year.
