Region enjoying a warm moment
Unseasonably high temperatures bring hikers and bikers outdoors
It was a day for playgrounds, for jogging in shorts and T-shirts, and even, for a few brave souls, for wading in the ocean, as temperatures soared into the 60s yesterday. Though the calendar showed December looming, thoughts of many across the region turned to picnics and beach walks, more than post-Thanksgiving Christmas shopping. Boston hit a high of 63 at 2:30 p.m. yesterday, short of the record of 67 recorded in 1946, but well above normal late-November highs. Warm weather was expected to continue through Tuesday, with temperatures due to descend to dip Wednesday, just in time for December’s arrival.
