Today's Weather: Temperatures Could Climb Close To 70

We're another day closer to spring, and it will certainly feel like it across the Commonwealth this afternoon. Although temperatures will be well above normal, we will stay shy of the record high which stands at 77 degrees — established March 9, 2016. Our readings will mainly be in the upper 60s, with a few towns near 70.

It’s rather astonishing that in 2007, Boston broke the record cold temperature for this day, with a chilly 5 degrees – a 72-degree difference from the high.

I don’t see much in the way of winter in our near future, but there is a cold front that will cross Tuesday night with a few rain showers. Cooler air will filter in Wednesday, dropping temperatures to the 40s by Wednesday evening.

Boston will be in between weather systems Thursday, with a little sunshine and temperatures still above normal. (The normal high this time of year is 43 degrees.) The next storm on Friday should bring a period of rain, as we will be on the milder side of the storm track once again.
