Weather in Boston 2019

Post by Elli21486 » Mon Jan 14, 2019 12:12 am

Happy to serve the community for five years now, here is the long awaited weather post for 2019. Like past years, this thread is strictly for weather or weather related post. Unlike past years though, I am still debating if I will be going this year because of what happens in Massachusetts in April. Yup, this year's Anime Boston will be in School Vacation Week, where all public schools throughout the state will be closed. That also means that Anime Boston will be on the same week as the Boston Marathon.

Anyway, back to weather and specifically School Vacation Week weather. Although it is impossible to predict weather so far out, weather around school vacation can range from lower 30s to as high as the 80s. I actually don't remember when there was snow during that week but I do remember a week where it was both windy and drizzling. It's going to be interesting, especially since we have not had our first major snowstorm...yet...

I don't think the con is on the same weekend as the Boston Marathon. The convention makes it a point to avoid being the same weekend anymore.
The Boston Marathon is on the 15th, so it's the weekend before AB so it shouldn't be interfering.

Which is why I said the same week, not same weekend. Anyway, the point of mentioning this is because it is still within Massachusetts School Vacation week, which means the city, and MBTA Subway, will be full of tourist.

It is Easter Weekend so be sure to keep that in mind.
"Thou who art darker than even darkness,
Thou who art deeper than even the night!
Thou, the Sea of Chaos, who drifts upon it,
Golden Lord of Darkness!
Hereby I call to thee,
Hereby I swear before thee!
Those who would stand against us,
All those who are fools,
By the power you and I possess,
Grant destruction equally upon them all!
GIGA SLAVE!"

Here we are in mid January, and in one week, we have hadd snow, ice, rain, subzero wind chills; and then temps in the 50s and torrential rain.

New England: where all the Pegasi and weather spirits are insane.

Accurate. Honestly, so long as we don't get sleet again, I'm happy. I got so sick after that AB because of walking in the sleet in cosplay.

I sure hope that it being later in the year will mean we'll have access to the courtyard. Though no matter what, it gets pretty windy there....

Yep, down here in RI, it's like 15-25 degrees but then as soon as precipitation comes by, it jumps up into the 40s/50s and rains. We haven't had any snow so far except for like two inches from that "winter storm" a week ago.

I know what a pegasus is, but I'm puzzled by the context of the reference here. Would you please be so kind as to explain?

Perhaps it's a My Little Pony reference where pegasi are the ones to control the weather...

Anyway, good news is coming soon for those watching the weather. Oh, did I mention the good news is for snow lovers! :D

That is due to the way the walls are arranged around that courtyard. As the various buildings went up around it, they accidentally built a vortex generator.

You are correct.

February 5th 2019 had temps more proper for April. Let us hope that, in actual April, we don't get February temps.

That explains it. Also, it's really nice to be in during the heat waves of summer.
