Boston's weather can be unpredictable. Typically Boston experiences temperate springs and sunny summers as well as crisp colorful falls and snowy white winters. If you are looking for one of the four seasons, chances are you will find any one of them here (and if you are lucky you may experience all four seasons in Boston in one day). We always suggest you consult the weather forecast in Boston a day or two before you arrive. Our climate guide below will give you a general idea of what to expect, but sudden showers, higher than expected temperatures as well as cool nights have caught many Bostonians off guard from time to time. Our advice is pack a few layers (for anytime of the year), comfortable shoes (waterproof if you can) and some rain cover (we provide umbrellas.)
A long-term weather forecast of Boston is likely to change so you may not find it as accurate as planning one or two days in advance.
