Beautiful warm weekend in store

Yesterday, a coastal low pressure system just missed us as it passed offshore, bringing overcast skies and a cool northeast wind to Cambridge. Today will be warmer, with a high temperature of 70°F (21°C) and mostly sunny skies thanks to a high pressure system building in from the west. Expect north winds becoming northeasterly at around 10 mph.

This weekend, the broad high pressure remains in place, which should make for a beautiful weekend. We’ll enjoy cloudless skies, light winds, and unseasonably warm temperatures, with highs both days around 80°F (27°C). The normal high temperature for this time of year is 68°F (20°C), so be sure to get outside and enjoy the warm weather!

Our next chance for rain will be Monday as a cold front passes through the region. At this point, though, showers look unlikely. Monday should otherwise be pleasant, with a high temperature in the mid 70s°F (around 23°C) and mostly sunny skies.
