It was nice to see plentiful sun today, no? Compliment that with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 40s, and a sometimes gusty wind was the only real negative (unless you’re looking for that elusive snow). We’ve got a calm night ahead, and that continues into tomorrow along with increased cloudiness.

Through Tonight: It’s a fine winter evening as winds begin to settle off daytime highs. Skies should remain mostly clear, with fairly light wind overnight. Lows are mainly in the mid-20s to near 30.

Tomorrow (Thursday): As the storm set to pound New England starts to get itself together, we should see lots of clouds around, though some sun may peek through especially early. Highs rise to right around 40, perhaps low 40s. Winds are southeast around 5 to 10 mph. Any precipitation should hold off until overnight.
