News weather

Cold and boring, except for some exciting gales

We are now deep into January and the greater Boston area has been cold and sadly snowless for the most part. There have been possibilities of light snow showers the past week and into the next, but nothing heavy enough to last and thoroughly enjoy. Friday night will bring in a cold front and blustery (a fun word for breezy!) weekend conditions. Although the outdoors has hardly been a winter wonderland, in western Massachusetts, the weather has been warm enough to go outside and take some long hikes in the fresh air.

Recently, it seems like gale winds around 40 mph have been blowing in both the east and west coast. The winds have knocked over trees and tall building signs and have even swept a few people away by the beach in California. Make sure to keep an eye out for these strong winds!
