Unusual warmth easing toward cool, rainy weather
Dry, warm weather will continue for New England through today. Temperatures, however, will not be as abnormally high as they were earlier this week. While many probably thought last Monday’s weather was pleasant, runners in the Boston Marathon were probably less satisfied. According to USA Today, roughly 2,500 of the over 20,000 participants sought medical attention for heat-related illness. Although humidity levels were moderate that day, high temperatures reaching the upper 80°F (30-32°C) were the main concern for the athletes.
