Technically, it’s still winter, but judging by the sunburn I got this weekend, it feels like summer weather in Boston. The hub set another record this month, reaching a high of 73 degrees this afternoon, breaking the record for March 19th, which was previously set at 72 degrees in 1903, according to the National Weather Service. In other words, today’s weather is 27 degrees higher than the average for this time of year.
Apparently, this sunshine trend isn’t going away anytime soon. As Boston.com reports, temps could reach 90 degrees on Thursday, so start planning on taking that “personal” day off from work now. As evidenced by your inevitably pale legs, the beach is calling your name. If Thursday does reach 90 degrees, it will likely break the temperature for March’s warmest day on record, which was previously set on March 31, 1998, when temps soared to 89 degrees. Hey, I’m not complaining.
And because Boston loves complaining about anything and everything, here’s a snapshot of some of our favorite weather-related tweets. Read this, then get out there and enjoy the sun!
Can’t wait to see what the first day of spring brings.
