Return to Winter

After not cracking 40°F (4°C) for the entire month of January, February in contrast has brought us a taste of spring so far. Maximum temperatures during the past two days have been in the 50s°F, but don’t expect that to last. A cold front moved through the area yesterday morning, ushering in more seasonable conditions. Where we had only a few showers with the frontal passage, parts of the South experienced severe weather and early-season tornadoes that killed several people.

Boston will return to winter temperatures once again and stay locked in a quiet pattern through the foreseeable future. Highs will generally be in the 30s°F with lows in the 20s. The good news is that spring is coming… temperatures warm by 10°F (6°C) every month for the next four months. So hang in there, warmth like we had on Wednesday is right around the corner!
