Topping out in the upper 50sF here in Boston ... getting an early blast of Canadian dry cold weather. No rain in sight for several weeks now

41 degrees F, 6 mph wind, this morning in Pittsburgh. National Weather says that's a wind chill of 37 degrees. It was a little rough transition.

Low 50F the past 4 days in the morning to end the week. Temps will inch up a few more degrees during my morning commute this coming week but not by much. 80's in the afternoons.

This time of year is hilarious. 8C on my ride into work, 28C on my way home. Adding my work clothes to the mix, that's three outfits for the day. 🙄

We had a cold snap last week. Riding to a Dr. appointment at 9am, it was 17F (-8C) when I left. It had been in the 40 the days before, so I wasn't really prepared and was chilly the whole way.

I woke up ready to pull out my cold weather gear and go ride at 35F. When I checked the weather, it was already up to 40 and heading to 70. Maybe I'll wait a few hours.

Here in Boston, it was in the 20Fs this morning, but it's supposed to hit record-high temperatures for the next two weeks - upper 50s and 60s
