What is winter like in Boston? When does it start and end? I've visited Boston quite a few times, but it has always been in the summer. I'm just curious.

Usually gets cold around mid November, wickid cold from around mid December to about Mid February, then we start a thaw for a few weeks (slowly) up to about now in April where you can range from 40's and 50's to 70's depending on the day. In spring we also have a cooling seabreeze along the immediate coastline a few miles inland.

Just get a heavy winter jacket from L.L. Bean
gloves, scarves, hat, snow shovel, snow blower, and/or a ice scraper for the cahhh. And always have a warm latte from Dunks (Dunkin Donuts) to warm you up :-)

Usually the wind and ice bother me more than the actual temperatures. Even in the middle of January, there's the occasional mild day thrown in. And Boston is cold, but it's not midwest cold--most days make it into the 30s even in the dead of winter, although it doesn't always feel that way with the wind chill.

Cool Fyi

Fyi the forecast says 73 on Friday and maybe up near 80 on Sat.

weather in new england is strange and can change in a minute. I've been walking downtown and it is partly sunny out, and raining at the same time the sun is still out.

what's up with that? :-)

That's what it's like in Michigan, too. The second week of April we got 6 inches of snow. This week it's been all rain, but by Friday it's supposed to be near 80. Must be crazy weather all over the country!
