Summer weather forecast for Boston

We could be in for a “scorcha” of a summer, according to the National Weather Service. The service’s Climate Prediction Center predicted warmer-than-average summer weather in Boston.


Boston’s summer weather forecast almost makes us want to take a dip in the Charles. Almost.

The National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center has shared its summer weather outlook. According to the forecasters, Boston could be in for a scorcha or two over the next few months.

There is a 50-60% chance of above-normal temperatures in New England for June, July, and August.

Plus, Accuweather predicted that our city will see between 14 and 18 days that reach 90 degrees — for context, the average is 15 days. This would still be cooler than last year, when Boston recorded 21 days of 90 degree temperatures during a wicked hot summer.

As far as rain goes, it’s anyone’s guess. The weather service saw an equal chance of above-normal, below-normal, and normal precipitation for New England.
