New Englanders worried that the time has come to stash away their fall outfits and break out the parkas and snow shoes can rest easy, as officials with the National Weather Service said Wednesday’s record low temperatures will only last for a single day.
“It’s just a glancing shot of cold air,” said Bill Simpson, a spokesperson for the National Weather Service. “Tomorrow morning will still be cold, in the upper teens to the twenties, but it will start recovering from now pretty nicely.”

Overnight temperatures dropped to the teens in the Greater Boston area with wind chills in the single digits, according to the NWS. Wednesday’s forecast of temperatures in the teens is the lowest on record for Nov. 13 dating back to 1883.
Western Mass. is predicted to take the brunt of the cold, with wind gusts as high as 40 miles bringing the cold in from the Northwest.
“Despite the sunshine, it will feel more like January today with highs only upper 20s to lower 30s,” the NWS tweeted.
According to Simpson, the cold air came down from Canada and has no correlation to what winter weather will bring to Massachusetts.
