CPW with a mix of sun and clouds

As MIT welcomes hundreds of high school seniors and their families to campus for Campus Preview Weekend, the “weather machine” is mostly being cooperative in honor of the event. Conditions will be especially nice for Saturday and Sunday of this weekend as a high pressure settles in. We will see mostly sunny conditions for the weekend and temperatures in the low 60s.

Today, a weak cold front is moving across our area, bringing with it the chance for rain showers. The greatest chance of rain is early Friday night, with less than a tenth of an inch of rain expected. For this front, the major weather models disagree on the amount and placement of rainfall, so it’s uncertain when we will see rain, if at all. But the models agree that by daytime Saturday, high pressure will set in for the rest of the weekend and conditions should be dry.
