Overcast days cloud over Cambridge

Persistent clouds have been casting a gloom over campus this week, culminating in a rainstorm for Cambridge and a possible bomb cyclone for the South and Northeast this weekend. Expect flat, uniform gray stratus clouds to stick around for awhile, and make sure to close your windows and to stay safe inside!

This winter storm already has a name! That’s because winter storm Quinlan is expected to bring intense wintery precipitation and strong gusts across the eastern U.S. and into Canada, mostly between Friday and Saturday. Temperatures aren’t expected to dip low enough for large amounts of snow, though Cambridge will receive plenty of rain and some healthy gusts of wind ahead of the return of spring.

Today: Mostly sunny. High around 49°F (9°C). West winds 5-8 mph. 
Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Low around 35°F (2°C). South winds 5-8 mph. 
Friday: Increasingly cloudy. High around 46°F (8°C) and low around 38°F (3°C). Southeast winds 4-7 mph.
Saturday: Rainy. High around 55°F (13°C) and low around 22°F (-6°C). Southeast winds 13-18 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. 
Sunday: Mostly sunny. High around 34°F (1°C) and low around 29°F (-2°C). West winds 16-20 mph.
