Currently in Boston — January 26, 2023

The weather, currently.

Rain comes to an end Thursday morning.

While there could be some snow as you are reading this, the trend is for a change to rain overnight as temperatures rise through the 40s to near 50°F by Thursday morning. A wind swept rain will greet sunrises and there will be big puddles. Temperatures will actually start falling during the afternoon towards 40°F as the rain comes to an end.

Clearing will take place Thursday night as temperatures continue their tumble into the '20s. Friday is mostly sunny and chilly with eyes in the '30s. It will reach the 40s though over the weekend with sun and clouds on Saturday and more clouds for Sunday. By the way this is one of the cloudiest January's on record.

What you can do, currently.

Climate change is making wildfires worse, damaging our communities and the environment. Not only do wildfires hurt our forests and put people in danger — burn scars can result in harsher floods — like we’ve seen in recent weeks across California.

Our partner Wren supports efforts to prevent wildfires by removing flammable, dead wood and turning it into biochar — removing carbon in the process. Join Wren to start funding climate solutions today, new users get 20 native trees planted for free on us.
