Boston Weather: 25.0°F | Mostly Cloudy


Things Heat Up

By Roberto Francisco Rondanelli

During the last four or five days, most of New England has been experiencing unseasonably cold temperatures associated with a large scale anticyclone and a mid-level trough over the northeastern part of the U.S. Already, freezing temperatures have been registered over large sections of the country and even some snowfall in the northern part of the Great Lakes region. Yesterday’s temperatures in Boston were more or less the normal temperatures you would get in the second half of October. Fortunately, this situation will change over the next 48 hours as the midlevel trough moves towards the Atlantic and warm advection at surface brings the temperatures up over most of the Northeast coast.
