8:18 am
we're running 15, 18 degrees milder right now than yesterday here's why. a southwest wind has taken over. and really helped to keep temperatures really from falling too much in the overnight and on into the morning. so if you're just breaking up with us, that southwest breeze is keeping temperatures well above the freezing mark. in fact, normally this time of the morning, we might still be in the upper 20s, instead we're in the upper 30s in boston. burlington. and as we go to the cape and islands, i have low to mid 40s right now. and as you go back up to the north shore and the south shore mostly upper upper 30s. go back to the west, a couple of 32s jaffrey and barre other than that everybody is above freezing. as we close out february, we're doing so on a mild note. check out these temperatures, beverly at 53. haverhill at 54.
