Tranquil weekend weather expected

Would the weather last Wednesday or Thursday be your ideal weather for the weekend? Ponchos and umbrellas were common across campus on Wednesday as a tight low pressure system moved north across the Mid-Atlantic states. The system brought heavy rain (1.64” at Logan Airport) and high winds to many areas. Then, as dryer air was pulled in from the South yesterday, the rain departed and the sun popped out. Well, the sunshine should stick around through this weekend, with winds slowly diminishing each day as a broad high pressure approaches from the southwest. Temperatures will also remain normal for this time of year, with highs in the lower 60s (15°C) and lows in the mid 40s (4°C). For the weather enthusiasts, sorry you couldn’t see Wednesday’s weather again this weekend.
