This October has been characterized by incredible autumn weather. It has been warm, sunny, and dry. To date, Boston has recieved only 0.50 inches of precipitation, which is over 2 inches below normal. Additionally, much of October saw high temperatures above average, except for October 9-14, which saw high temperatures right around average. The overall monthly average temperature through Oct. 20 is 60.5°F, which is 4.8°F above the climatological average.
Unfortunately, our streak of warm weather is about to come to the end. Today is likely the last day for at least a week that we will experience temperatures above 60°F. A cold front passing through tonight will usher in a much colder air mass for the rest of the week, with highs in the low 50°F’s and overnight lows in the mid to high 30°F’s. Additionally, tomorrow we may experience a chilly rain due to a developing coastal low pressure system.
