Lower 80s, low humidity and sunshine... would you call it a top 10 kind of day? Only complaint, other than it not being the weekend, is maybe the wind was a bit much? It certainly was gusty, at times blowing 30-35mph. No sea breeze will move inland with a strong west wind like that.
In the city of Boston, it was the first time we've hit 80 degrees since September 14th of last year. Still, it was nowhere close to the record of 93 set back in 1932.
Cooler weather works in for the next few days, but it'll still be close to, or just above the averages. It''s near 70 the next couple days, and back into the low to mid 60s on Sunday. On Saturday and Sunday, knock off 5-8 off those temps if you live along the coast thanks to an onshore wind or sea breeze kicking in.
Overall, the weekend is mainly dry, but with some colder air aloft, I can't rule out an isolated shower due to a bit of instability. The best chance for a passing shower is outside 495, in the higher terrain of Worcester County.
Hope you enjoyed today, and enjoy the weekend!
