A Break in the Clouds

A Break in the Clouds

Today’s weather will offer a reprieve from the cool, dreary weather that MIT has experienced over the past couple days. A change in wind direction means that warmer air from over land will blow in from the West, instead of cool ocean air from the East. As a result, temperatures will reach the high 70s°F, instead of hovering around the 60°F mark as they did on Wednesday and Thursday.

However, a cold front approaching the area will drop temperatures overnight and lead to strong Northwest winds, with gusts of up to 30 miles per hour possible through tomorrow. While the relatively chilly weather will be back in place for Saturday, the winds will eventually calm, setting the stage for the return of sunshine and higher temperatures at the beginning of next week. This will provide a taste of pleasant, late-summer weather before the first day of autumn on Tuesday.
