What’s the Weather for Bedford Day?

By Peter Collins-Brown

For those of you making final preparations for Bedford Day, the weather this Saturday won’t be cloudless like last year.

If you are raising a tent near Town Hall early in the morning, expect mostly cloudy skies with the chance of a few showers. Temperatures should be 55–60°F.

We will see the passage of a cold front during mid-morning, near parade time. Since the front will be passing before we get any intense solar heating, thunderstorms won’t be a problem. If you’re marching in the parade, the temperatures will be around a comfortable 65°.

After noontime, expect partly cloudy conditions with temperatures near 72°; the air should get drier as we head into the afternoon, with similar conditions continuing for clean-up time after
3pm. No need for warm coats or heavy raincoats.

We’ll see you at Bedford Day! Have a great time!

Editor’s Note: Bedford resident Peter Collins-Brown has been a weather fanatic all his life and decided early on that meteorology was the career for him. After graduating from Boston University with a degree in Chemistry, he earned a Masters in Atmospheric Science at the University of Lowell and become a member of the American Meteorological Society. Now he’s sharing his passion for the weather with The Bedford Citizen. Every other week or so, Peter will send a bit of an inside scoop on the weather—perhaps including the forecast for the upcoming week, how the weather works, and how it might impact your daily routine.
