It was an amazing Thursday as Boston and Worcester broke their record highs! Boston reached 83, breaking the previous record of 72 set back in 1948.

Worcester broke their former record of 76 set back in 1938 as temperatures climbed up to 78.  This is the first time that Boston has reached 80+ degrees in March since 1998.

While today is not going to be a record-breaker, it is still going to be mild for late March.  Highs will be in the 70-75 degree range except for the Cape and Islands hovering in the middle and upper 60s.

The sun will be shining, and the wind will be gusty from the northwest.

The 1st weekend of Spring ’12 will be cooler and more seasonable than the past few days.  Clouds will be thickening during the day on Saturday. Highs will be in the 60s.  Skies will be overcast along with  a few showers Saturday night through Sunday.

However, the majority of the showers on Sunday will be during the first half of the day. Highs on Sunday will be near-normal around 50.

Early next week is showing signs of ‘frosty’ overnights, including Monday and Tuesday nights.   Highs on Tuesday will struggle to ‘touch’ 50 degrees.  Temperatures will begin to moderate and climb above average during the middle part of next week.

*Models are hinting at more seasonable to slightly above average highs through the beginning of April.  At the moment, it doesn’t look like any record-breaking heat will be returning in the near future.

Do you ever wonder what you are viewing in the night sky?

Here is a link with your detailed answer(s).

Happy FRRRiday!
