The juxtaposition of a beautiful day and what happened in Boston yesterday is always so strange to me. Last evening I was sitting outside watching the birds have a last feeding before they went to sleep. I kept thinking how fortunate I am to live in such a great part of the world during a fantastic time of year and yet keenly aware many families were living in utter dismay as their own lives had been turned upside down in an instant. I often say that I can tell you how everyone’s story ultimately ends, but the manner and timing of that ending are what we don’t know.
It's quite chilly this morning across the region with a few spots in the 20s and most others in the 30s. The sun is very strong this time of year, similar to mid-August, so temperatures will rise rapidly through the morning. High pressure continues to build into region and this will be the first full week that you will really feel spring has arrived. A coastal sea-breeze will prevent Boston from hitting 60F today, but most areas away from the coast will be at or above that mark the entire week!
