Setting the Record Straight

Records are meant to be broken–I have heard that phrase quite often in the sports world and, at times, one can apply this to the world of meteorology. I’m split on us beating the snowfall record last winter—the meteorologist in me kept thinking there is no way in h#$%* we’ve come this far and NOT set the record but the homeowner in me kept thinking..ENOUGH! Thankfully today the records we are talking about are warm ones!

Hard to believe that yesterday’s high temp in Boston was 76 and no record was set (79 back in 1994) but those are the breaks. Today’s record high is 73 (1959) and I think that will fall thanks to a healthy southerly flow with us all day. This southerly flow has also pushed some early summer humidity our way as well so the day will behave more like early June than early November! Skies average out partly to mostly cloudy (a few rain showers on Cape Cod too).

Your weekend doesn’t offer any record breaking weather but the temps do slide downhill…back to normal. A bunch of clouds & a cooling breeze will describe Saturdays weather while Sunday sees abundant sunshine but temps actually below normal (55), briefly reaching the low 50s by afternoon with a cool breeze throughout the day.

Mild weather is set to return next week….I’ll go on the record with that.
