Cool, wet weather approaching this weekend

As a low pressure system moves over the region, Cambridge will experience damp, cloudy conditions with intermittent precipitation. Temperatures will remain seasonable, with highs in the 60°s for the next several days.

Drought continues to plague over 65 percent of the mainland United States; this sets the record for the worst drought extent in the 12-year history recorded by the Drought Monitor. However, some regions are experiencing the opposite extreme, with record precipitation; Indiana encountered a record-wet September this year, and an area of low pressure brought up to three inches of early-season snow to the mountains in Snowbird, UT on Wednesday.
