Currently in Boston — February 16, 2023

The weather, currently.

Unusually warm weather the next couple of days.

When you get up Thursday morning it will already be around 50°F that's a more typical temperature for some time in late March or early April. By the afternoon a new record will likely be set in Boston somewhere around 62°F or 63°F.

There will be more cloudiness for the second half of the day after a break start. Thursday night a few showers will be crossing the area which may evolve into a steady rain for several hours. This will continue for the first part of Friday. Highs on Friday will again be around 60°F and if readings get to 62°F — a new record will be set on that day as well.

It turns colder for Saturday with highs only approaching 40°F, typical for the time of year. It's back to the mild stuff on Sunday with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s.  —Dave Epstein
