Temperatures above average in Cambridge

Over the past few days, temperatures more than 10 degrees higher than average melted most of the snow remaining from the last storm. The daily average for this week in Cambridge is normally below freezing (32°F), but we have barely dipped below freezing even at night since last week. Expect warmer weather to persist through Friday before a return to normal temperatures this weekend.

Other places are also experiencing above-normal temperatures. Highs above 100°F have hurt tennis players in the Australian Open, while southern California faces extreme fire danger and record warmth.
