Mild Finish to the Work Week

After being stuck in the lower and middle 40s on Sunday and Monday and failing to reach 50F on Tuesday and Wednesday, we’ll get a nice break from the cold to finish out the week.

High pressure pushed offshore yesterday and southwesterly winds developed over the course of the day. These southwesterly winds gradually worked to scour out our chilly early week air mass. Milder air began to push north and eastward into New England throughout the day and continued to feed into the region overnight. Temperatures this morning across much of the Northeast were 10-20F warmer than Wednesday morning.

Expect temperatures to climb quickly through the 40s and 50s today and to push toward 60F this afternoon, with plenty of sunshine expected throughout the day.

Readings will only fall back into the 40s tonight and will head toward 60F again on Friday with fair weather continuing through the daytime hours.
