WEATHER NOW: A Spring Feel Today, Near Record Highs


If you liked Monday’s mild temperatures you’re going to love today.  In fact, we’ll be close to record warmth this afternoon as highs climb to 60+ in some inland areas!

And what a day for a Victory Parade! Temperatures this afternoon will climb to the low to mid 60s in Boston–more typical of spring Baseball than a post-Super Bowl celebration. 

Morning fog and sprinkles will clear out and allow for a partly sunny skies this afternoon.  The line of showers moving across New England this morning developed well ahead of an approaching cold front.  The front will bring some cooler temperatures by tomorrow.


Colder air behind the front will settle in Wednesday., with highs 20F cooler than today in spots.  That cold air will need to be monitored as our next disturbance moves in.  While it stays dry during the day and even through the evening commute, travel later Wednesday night and Thursday morning could be impacted.

As rain pushes east, the cold air at the surface could allow for freezing rain/sleet inland Wednesday night into Thursday morning. 

As temperatures warm, a change to “plain rain” is expected before the rain tapers Thursday afternoon.  A thin icy glaze is possible on untreated roadways, trees, powerlines, etc before temperatures warm. The highest risk will be in higher elevations north and west of Providence.

Another round of rain is likely Thursday night into Friday morning.
