Wednesday Forecast

3:18PM

DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 18-22)
High pressure dominates through the weekend with fair weather and above normal temperatures but slight variations in day to day temperatures as a weak nearly “invisible” cold front comes by early Friday. Still looking like great weather for viewing Orionid Meteors peaking on the nights of October 20 and 21, as well as the Head Of The Charles Regatta which will take place on the Charles River between Cambridge and Boston on October 21 and 22.
REMAINDER OF TODAY: Sunny. Highs 65-73. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 45-53. Wind light SW.
THURSDAY: Sunny. Highs 68-75. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy early then sunny. Lows in the 50s. Highs in the 60s.
SATURDAY: Sunny. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 70s.
SUNDAY: Sunny. Lows in the 50s. Highs in the 70s.

DAYS 6-10 (OCTOBER 23-27)
A transition takes place during this period with the high pressure ridge moving to the east and a low pressure trough dropping into the Great Lakes and Midwest, probably in 2 stages with the second being the stronger push. This leaves southern New England on the warm side of things through October 24 with dry weather to start then an increased shower risk by later October 24. Episodic unsettled weather will accompany a downward trend in temperatures mid period although it may actually spike up a little bit very end of the period between push #1 and push #2.

DAYS 11-15 (OCTOBER 28-NOVEMBER 1)
A new weather pattern should feature below normal temperatures and a possible period of storminess – will continue to fine-tune as it gets closer.

Sunday Forecast

8:41AM

DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 15-19)
The feel of summer rules today as we continue in the overall warm-ridge pattern. A cold front will push through the region tonight though, and bring cooler air for the start of the week, but another warm-up will follow this as the overall pattern remains in place. There is likely to be some large temperature variations especially regarding overnight lows across the region, and the spread from those to daytime highs, as is typical for a weather pattern dominated by high pressure.

DAYS 11-15 (OCTOBER 25-29)
A trend to more up/down temps and unsettled weather may continue but low confidence at this time.

A disturbance from the west sends cloudiness and eventually some patches of light rain into parts of southern New England through tonight before being pushed to the south by dominant high pressure re-building over the region.

6:31PM

DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 10-14)
Quick discussion. Today was great wasn’t it?! A disturbance makes a run at the region Wednesday but will only manage to push some light rain into parts of the region Wednesday night before high pressure says “nope!” and shunts it to the south while killing it off for good measure. This high pressure will regain and retain control through the start of the weekend.

OVERNIGHT: Clear. Lows 48-56. Wind light N.
WEDNESDAY: Increasing clouds. Highs 62-67. Wind light NE.
