The heat wave cools down

Boston had a brief taste of summer this past week with temperatures over 90 °F — but don’t expect similar heat this weekend. As a cold front pushes in from the west in the next couple of days, expect to feel some cooler (but not too cold) weather, with a high chance of rain on Saturday. But Boston is at least is having milder weather than other places in the U.S.; last week, some areas in the Colorado Rockies received almost a foot of snow, and tornado season is starting to come into full swing in the Great Plains region. Kansas and Oklahoma experienced some of the first severe tornadoes of the year this past week, with a total of 32 recorded tornadoes between May 1 and 3. More severe storms are expected to arrive as the tornado season continues.
