Today's Weather: Sunshine And Strong, Gusty Winds

Overnight showers have exited the region and now we're looking at a mostly sunny and windy day today. There's actually a wind advisory posted for the eastern half of Massachusetts and winds could gust strong enough to create a few scattered power outages this afternoon.

If today is the day you put your trash out, you'll definitely want to try to get your trash cans put away early if possible, because otherwise, they may blow out of the front yard.

Sunshine continues into Thursday, with another day of above-average temperatures as readings get into the 50-degree range.

A storm system will pass too far east of New England this weekend to create any problems, although it will be close enough to drag down some colder air from Canada. This means that Friday and Saturday will be chillier days then we've experienced this week, and there is a chance of some rain or snow showers.

The dry and mild weather resumes on Sunday, and by early next week, we're back in the 50s. More 60-degree weather is also not out of the question.
