October Sky

October Sky

On Sunday, Hurricane Kyle passed quietly off to our east by only 200 miles, bringing no more than a few showers to the Boston area during its passage. As we enter October tomorrow, weather phenomena such as hurricanes and thunderstorms in our vicinity become even a more remote possibility as the ocean cools and the solar angle rapidly decreases. October in Boston can still be very pleasant — combine fall foliage with average high temps in the mid 50s (13°C) to mid 60s (18°C) and it’s not hard to see why.

The beginning of October 2008 will bring near-average conditions over the Boston area. After a cold front passage tomorrow, skies will rapidly clear and result in sunny skies for the remainder of the workweek and weekend. Enjoy!
