66/61 here now at 12:10pm.  Breezy northwest wind too.

Lol.  How it can go from afternoons of absolute torching to sitting mid-60s is wild.

50s are back in N.NY like MSS.

 

77°/69.6° here.  I keep checking to see when the more comfortable air will make it here.  The wind is from the NW now.

I think it more apt to say it is a wild gradient for August ?

not trying to tamp down your expression - it is an impressive gradient, regardless.  But that is actually pretty common in spring around here - "down here" may be more apropos. 

Like, I've seen the 40 F differences across even short ranges, between Lawrence Massachusetts, and Hartford CT on some hapless screen door slammin' nonsuspecting day in May, many ... many times.    In fact, ALB at 83 while it is 38 F at the end of April's - I think I've seen that at least a handful over the decades.   

Not sure what the return rate for butt boning BD "extremes" are, as opposed to just the standard dildo ..but I know that 30 F variance between HFD and BOS is rudely fairly common.

Greatest gradient I can recall for stations basically in the same airmass came on May 29, 1978 - HUL had 96 while EPO, only 95 miles away, was in the fog at 49.

Went from 90 to 39 in 1998 on March 31 over the Merrimack Valley/UML ... That was the Michael Jordan of BD fronts -

Another epic one was back in 2002, when I worked a gig at the 900 block across from BU on Comm Ave in Boston. It was 94 with scattered TCU casting shadows over the city sky line at 1pm; it was 45 at 5pm, with slate ceilings and mist particles when I left the office..  This is a short 2nd to the Michael Jordan BD above...

It's not 'liked' - haha.. but one can appreciate the power. 

That's what I mean by spring...  PF is right though..I've seen some interesting icing gradients in like Novie or Dec, when it's 28 F in ageo drain in S NH but it's nearing 60 at HFD.   Autumn is the other season more typical.

Logan made 98 ... That's prolly gonna do it as they're about 10 minutes away from TCU field with undercutting outflow... Probably a gusty shower too... 

This stuff went by here with insidiously dark scary skies that produced 20 mph winds and light sideways rains with gentle thunder.   Weird.

Sun is out now.  Much cooler... it was 96 prior and it's 78 now.   I mean 78/75 ... but baby steps.

I don't know if this is the "official" reading for KBOS.  It shows a high of 98.6F at 17:55.  If that is the case does it go down in the books as a 99F high?

They'll round it... 

The ASOS was 37 as reported at both Iowa State and NWS GRR's interface, so that works out to 98.6 and should round up -
