Big Weekend Warm-Up

HotThe last week hasn’t exactly felt like January, and this weekend will be no different. In fact, it will feel downright spring-like!

Helped by a week of high temperatures in the 40s to near 50, most communities around Greater Boston, including Hingham, are running at least 2 degrees above average so far this month. That despite the coldest air in a year just 10 days ago.

Highs on Saturday will climb into the upper 40s to near 50. For the big Patriots-Texans game on Sunday, expect highs to max out in the middle 50s. More sunshine will develop with time during the day. Even into Monday highs are expected to remain in the middle 50s.

Temperatures will slowly slide back to normal by mid-week, with a bitter blast of cold air expected by week’s end.
