The folks at the National Weather Service office in Taunton recently tweeted that the current forecast for Boston will tie the longest stretch of consecutive days with high temperatures below 20F:
[10am] With the current forecast, it looks like we could tie the record for most consecutive days with max temps being 20°F or less in Boston, MA! This record is exactly a century old. pic.twitter.com/Q5gOhgv3AA

While minimum temperatures haven’t been breaking record lows, the duration of the frigid temperatures has been quite remarkable.
Here on the Cape, we dipped below freezing Christmas Day and haven’t been close to the freezing mark since. In fact, we haven’t been warmer than 25F since Tuesday.
And looking ahead to the coming days, our only opportunities between now and next weekend are likely to come on Wednesday and Thursday when we may see temperatures briefly make a run at 30 to 35F – depending upon how close an offshore storm gets to the region.
