Forecast: A Few Showers, But Today Will Be Mostly Dry

Today starts dry with a lot of clouds as a cold front is going to pass the area and bring with it a few showers.

This isn't going to be a wet day. The showers will likely not arrive this morning and will be over by the evening commute. I expect perhaps up to one-10th of an inch of rainfall. If you are wondering, the drought is still firmly in place, and I don't expect any significant improvement through the month.

Temperatures today are going to be seasonable, about where they should be in the mid-50s. It may even reach 60 south of Boston. As a side note, some spots hit 70 well north and west of Boston on Tuesday.

Tonight, the skies will clear, and temperatures will fall. Temperatures by Thursday morning will be around freezing — a bit colder in a few spots and a bit warmer in the city.

Thursday will be sunny and dry. Temperatures in the low to mid-50s, which is not bad for the second week of November. Friday is quite mild through the middle of the day, but a strong cold front will usher in chillier air, and temperatures will fall by sunset.

If you have outdoor activities Saturday, it's going to be the coldest day so far this fall. Temperatures will be in the 30s much of the morning and only reach the lower to perhaps mid-40s by the afternoon. Winds will be brisk, so expect a windchill.

A warming trend will occur on Sunday and early next week as the cold air to start the upcoming weekend quickly retreats.
