Boston Weather: 38.0°F | A Few Clouds

Weather: Warm, Dark, and Dry

By Robert Lindsay Korty

With the sun setting progressively earlier and unseasonably cold temperatures across New England during the past couple of weeks, it has felt as though winter arrived prematurely. In fact, the high temperature in Boston has been at or below normal every during the past three weeks. (The normal high for today’s date is 55°F (13°C).) With a powerful storm continuing to move eastward into the western Atlantic, a ridge of high pressure is building over the eastern United States in its wake. As the jet stream has retreated northward into Canada (if only temporarily), temperatures should peak above normal levels each day this weekend. Enjoy!
