This weekend in will now mark Boston’s hottest October temperatures in over a decade. Friday, October 27 will reach highs of 76°, while Saturday will hit a similar 74°. The last time Boston experienced temperatures this high in October was 2010.
These highs are still considered unusual for Boston weather in October. The last time it was this hot on October 27 and 28 was in 2010, when the temperatures reached 73°. Four years prior we experienced a record low with temperatures of 29°. But despite those chilly temps in 2006, the highest snowfall on record for this time of year is only .4 inches, which in New England fashion, occurred the year succeeding the record high temperatures!
While New Englanders have mixed emotions about warm weather, this could be the last of the warm, sunny days ahead. Last year’s average temperature for November was 50° and December, 38°. So, make sure to take advantage of Friday and Saturday’s warm weather with some outdoor fun!
Saturday’s forecast does come with high wind gusts, but otherwise it’s a clear and sunny day, which is perfect for the sighting both the Boston Henge sunset and Hunter’s Moon slated to occur on Saturday evening.
