As the calendar turns from 2020 to 2021, our weather pattern will remain largely unchanged. That means another pop of mild air, and no signs of meaningful snow.
Here are three things to know about this week’s weather in Hingham:
Mild Start to the Week
Although Monday will be a mainly cloudy day, with some breaks of sun late, temperatures will be well above average. During the day expect highs to reach near 50 degrees, before a cold front brings in more seasonable air for Tuesday and Wednesday.
On those days, despite sunshine, temperatures will remain locked in the 30s.
Warm and Wet New Year
Given the pandemic, New Year’s Eve celebrations will no doubt be subdued this year. Like other major holidays though, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, we will be given the gift of warmth.
Temperatures both on New Year’s Eve and on New Year’s Day will likely be in the 50s.
Also like those other two holidays, the warmth comes with a price: waves of rain late Thursday into Friday.
So, if you want to plan something festive (and safe) for New Year’s Eve, the weather will cooperate for windows open or small garage gatherings.
Cooler Again by Next Weekend
Behind the New Year’s warmth, temperatures will return to normal during the first weekend of 2021.
That means more 30s and 40s for high temperatures.
