Record-breaking warmth ending over the weekend

New England has experienced warm, tranquil weather over the past week. High temperatures have been able to climb into the 70s°F (21-25°C) for most days this week, breaking records on Sunday and Monday. Yesterday’s high of 83°F (28°C) also broke a record of 72°F (22°C) for that day. These highs are actually Boston’s typical temperatures for late June! Today, the Boston area has yet another chance of seeing highs reach near 75°F (24°C).

But the abnormal warmth will subside as a cold front continues to drop southward out of Canada. The front will block the southerly flow from an Atlantic high-pressure ridge that has provided the recent warm weather. In addition, more clouds and showers should move in during the weekend as a storm system approaches from the West. After the storm departs by early next week, windy conditions will develop across the region.
