Sophomores waiting in line for the Class of 2011 Ring Premiere tonight will have to endure cold temperatures as the chilly weather the region has experienced this week continues. While continued high pressure will present clear, sunny skies, the high temperature this afternoon will reach only the mid 20s˚F and proceed to fall to around 16˚F overnight. However, a relative improvement in conditions can be expected over the weekend, as sunny skies will persist with temperatures rising steadily through Saturday and Sunday. Highs in the low to mid 40s˚F can be expected for Saturday, while Sunday could see highs nearing 50˚F. Don’t get too comfortable, however, as temperatures will drop below freezing once again when school resumes on Monday.

While average highs for this time of year range around 50°F, the recent cold temperatures appear poised to stay in place over the weekend.

The Autumn season has officially begun as of 11:44 a.m. EDT yesterday morning, and today is its first full day. We can expect gradually falling temperatures through the coming months, as New England transitions from its warm, pleasant summer to another cold, snowy winter. Although you may need to stop wearing flip-flops and start wearing jackets, you will still get to enjoy some sunshine; in fact, October has the greatest average number of clear days of any month in Boston. However, while it may still seem nice outside now, it won’t be long until winter weather arrives, as the average date of the first trace of snow is November 4th.
