Spring not here yet

After some spring-like weather earlier this week, temperatures have cooled down and will remain slightly below average for the foreseeable future. While in the past Boston has recorded highs in March above 70°F, the mean high temperature is 46°F. This weekend will bring temperatures around freezing, with scattered clouds and chances of precipitation.

While the benefits of warm weather remain distant, the length of day signals the transition toward summer; starting on Sunday, the length of day in Boston will be longer than 12 hours, with sunrise at 6:52 a.m. and sunset at 6:53 p.m.
