Cool weather, mix of sun and clouds

We will see cool but pleasant conditions in Boston as we head into the long weekend, with highs generally in the low 60s°F and lows in the low 50s°F. Overnight lows in the next two days may even dip into the upper 40s°F. Today and tomorrow, we will see some clouds and wind due to a coastal low-pressure system affecting the region from Virginia through New York and southern New England. This nor’easter will linger over the mid-Atlantic for several days.

Fortunately for MIT students wanting to go outside and enjoy the fall weather, this system is unlikely to bring much rain as far north as Boston. It will likely be cool and calm when the Red Sox open the ALCS on Saturday night at Fenway Park. As we move into next week, we will begin to see warmer and sunnier conditions.
