Boston Weather: 40.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: ‘Fan’tastic Tuesday

By Cegeon J. Chan
STAFF METEOROLOGIST

Not only do New England Patriots fans get to savor another Super Bowl victory parade today outside in Boston, but they also can relish in unseasonably warm and dry weather. After going through the snowiest month ever recorded in the century-long history books, we can expect temperatures to be about ten degrees above the climatological average for today. Chinese New Year (Gung Hay Fat Choy!) is tomorrow, and any activities being held tomorrow will also be under dry and relatively warm conditions.

During the overnight hours Wednesday, we can say good-bye to the warm weather as a low pressure center and its associated precipitation will be creeping into southern New England. This storm will start off as a weak one; however, it will intensify once it reaches the relatively warmer ocean water. It will likely start off with rain and then change to snow. Although there is still high uncertainty in the all-important track, the potential does exist for a weak-to-moderate (3”-7”) snowstorm for Thursday.

Extended Forecast:

Today: Partly to mostly cloudy. Highs in the mid 40’s F (7°C). Light

winds.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Lows in the mid 30’s F (0°C).

Tomorrow: Partly sunny with highs around 45°F (7°C).

Tomorrow night: Rain or snow after midnight. Lows in the mid 30’s F

(0°C).

Thursday: Snow likely in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 30’s F (3°C)

and lows in the upper 20’s F (-3°C).
