Temperatures to reach 80s Wednesday in MA

Boston MA- 4/26/18- Kids walk in a light rain toward the Mildred Avenue Middle School

Temperatures are expected to reach 82 degrees in Worcester.

The record for the day is 85 degrees, set in 2001, and the National Weather Service said it expected the high for Thursday at Long Island MacArthur Airport would be "near 85" degrees.

People eager to get out on the water in their canoes and kayaks may want to take some extra precautions, officials from the weather service said. The warmest April day since weather information was recorded here in Sheldon was 98-degrees, which came back on April 28, 1910, while the coldest low temperature was 2-degrees below zero, which happened on April 3, 1936.

While it did feature some spring-like weather, it also involved cold temperatures and a decent amount of snow. This April we saw 18.5-inches of wet, heavy snow, and were even treated to an April blizzard. Now, to make all this cold a little more palatable, in May 1975 we had one of the warmest on record at 62.1F - it's good enough for the 6th warmest May on record. That certainly seemed to be true for April, 2018.
