WORCESTER – The city did not set a record-low temperature Wednesday morning, despite it being colder here than in Boston, which did set a new mark.

According to Alan Dunham, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Taunton, the recorded low in Worcester was 32 degrees, 1 degree warmer than the record of 31 degrees set in 1928.

“You were close, but no cigar,” Dunham said.

At Boston's Logan Airport, the mercury dropped to 37 degrees, breaking a record low set in 1882, according to the weather service.

There was also a trace of snow overnight in Worcester, Dunham said, and so far Worcester’s been salted with .7 inches of snow this May.

“It certainly doesn’t happen all the time,” Dunham said of snow accumulations this late into the year.

But it’s about to turn warmer, Dunham said.

Wednesday’s high temperatures are expected to reach the upper 50s. Thursday is supposed to climb to the upper 60s. By Friday it should be in the lower 70s, Dunham said.
