Boston reached a record high of 73 degrees Friday, making it the warmest day ever recorded in the month of February for the city. Worcester did the same at 69 degrees.
It was another record breaker Saturday. Afternoon highs soared once again into the 60s and even lower 70s in some spots. Boston hit 69 degrees breaking the previous record of 65 degrees set back in 1930. Worcester also broke the record high for the date today reaching 65 degrees, warmer than the previous record of 64 set in 1976.
BACK TO WINTER
Cold air has returned for the back half of the weekend. We're waking up to temperatures in the 30s with wind chills readings in the 20s. Gusts 30-35mph will be around all day and won't taper off until tonight. Highs will climb into the mid 40s, but with those winds it'll feel like the upper 30s. The good news, partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies to enjoy!
ROLLER COAST WEEK
While it won't be record warmth, milder 50s will return each afternoon beginning Monday. A storm system will move through mid-week, bringing a slight chance for a few wet flakes north of the Pike Tuesday as a warm front moves in. Showers will be around Wednesday, then Thursday we'll likely see falling temps behind a cold front. A clipper system may bring a chance for light snow Friday...we're watching that track closely!
