The weather, currently.

Near record high temperatures to conclude the work week

Any showers will end early this evening followed by partial clearing overnight as temperatures stay in the 40s. Sunshine will tend to increase during the day on Friday along with very mild temperatures reaching below to mid 70s in the afternoon. The record for tomorrow in Boston is 74°F set back in 2012 and it's the same for Worcester.

On Saturday a rainstorm arrives with cooler temperatures and a wind off the water. Highs will only be in the lower 50s. Sunshine should return on Sunday with reading still above average in the 50s to near 60°F in the afternoon. —Dave Epstein

What you need to know, currently.

The next time this newsletter hits your inbox it will be truly “spring” in the Northern Hemisphere, by every definition— meteorological and astronomical.

Tomorrow, if skies are clear near you look out for another spring phenomenon known as the “crow moon” or “worm moon”. This occurs when the moon appears larger in the sky because it is closer to the horizon and our eyes compare it to earthy objects like buildings and trees.
