Chilly weather finally arrives

This October has been characterized by incredible autumn weather. It has been warm, sunny, and dry. To date, Boston has recieved only 0.50 inches of precipitation, which is over 2 inches below normal. Additionally, much of October saw high temperatures above average, except for October 9-14, which saw high temperatures right around average. The overall monthly average temperature through Oct. 20 is 60.5°F, which is 4.8°F above the climatological average.

Unfortunately, our streak of warm weather is about to come to the end. Today is likely the last day for at least a week that we will experience temperatures above 60°F. A cold front passing through tonight will usher in a much colder air mass for the rest of the week, with highs in the low 50°F’s and overnight lows in the mid to high 30°F’s. Additionally, tomorrow we may experience a chilly rain due to a developing coastal low pressure system.
