Currently in Boston — November 4th, 2022

The drum beat of sunshine continues

In the annals of November weather this week has to be up there as one of the best. We're continuing the sunshine tomorrow after a clear night and temperatures in the 40s. It will reach 65°F to 70°F for Friday. Saturday is my pick of the weekend. I expect abundant sunshine and warm temperatures reaching the lower and even middle 70s in a few spots. Some records are possible. On Sunday a southerly flow brings a little more humidity and with it some clouds. Temperatures will still be warm in the 70s for the afternoon high. It will eventually turn cooler next week but Monday does look warm still.

'We’re tapping into something that’s deep within our innate nature,' Holmes said. 'Hiking, swimming, camping — we have an attraction to the outdoors, we’ve just been systematically bullied out of the space,' she said.

Climate change, and the environmental racism that stems from it, has reinforced this severed relationship between Black people and their native environment, according to Holmes."
