Forecast: Cold Front Ending, Sun And Mild Temperatures Ahead

Boston will finally see the temperature rise above 50F today, but it’s after back to back of two of the coldest June days ever recorded.  On Sunday when it was warm and humid, a cold front passed through the area.  As this front came through, winds turned to the northeast and the temperature rapidly fell from the 70s to the 40s, where it had been stuck since.

Finally the winds will turn more northerly today and with the sunshine, temperatures will become much milder.  Now, it’s not going to be warm, but it won’t be so cold you will feel the need for the heat.  I ended up putting on my heat in the office yesterday — I was that cold.

The weather system that brought the unseasonably chilly air to the area is moving away. The rest of the week and weekend look to be mostly dry.

When you look at the forecast, you will see an absence of 80-degree weather, but this is not atypical for early June.  The weather we saw at the end of May, which felt so much like summer, was just as far away from average as we are now with this chill.

High pressure will build into the area over the next five days with a brief interruption possible in the form of a shower or two Thursday night or Friday morning.  Otherwise, we are looking at a very nice weekend with typically mild temperatures.  The nights will be great for sleeping right through the upcoming weekend.  Enjoy the day.

Wednesday: Today Mostly sunny, with a high near 65.

Wednesday night: Mostly clear, with a low in the mid 40s.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high 65-70.

Friday: Partly cloudy, may shower in the morning.  Highs 70-75.

Saturday: Partly sunny, with a high near 75.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high in the lower 70s.
