Currently in Boston — January 27th, 2023

The weather, currently.

A tranquil weekend with some sunshine.

After 1 to 2 inches of rain fell overnight, the next few days are actually looking dry. This is in contrast to what has been a wetter than average couple of months. Temperatures will be in the 20s when you get up Friday morning, but I don't expect any icy spots, as the roads will have dried by then. During Friday afternoon, we will see quite a bit of sunshine along with a few clouds and temperatures in the 35°F-40°F range. It will be chilly Friday night, but a little milder on Saturday along with lots of sunshine. Temperatures will reach the lower to perhaps middle 40s Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, a weather system approaches, but it's very weak. We'll see some increase in cloud cover and temperatures between 45°F-50°F.

The views of Ann Arbor are right out of a snow globe as Wednesday marked the region’s first big snow of the year.

Ann Arbor public school kids had the day off and headed straight to Veterans Park to glide down Ann Arbor’s most popular sledding trail.

Patrick Grammatico brought his 3-year-old grandson to skid down the same hill he had visited in his youth.

“I remember coming here as a kid,” he told Michigan Live. “Today we got here early as another family was leaving and we had the hill all to ourselves.”Commuters braved the weather, snowflakes decorated the skies, hikers climbed higher heights to take in the views, families went on their first-ever sledding trip together, and even college students got in a snowball fight or two.

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.
