Spring-like weather draws Southern New Englanders outdoors

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Wednesday was the third day of February vacation but it felt more like spring break as children and adults alike headed outside to enjoy the warm weather.

Southern New Englanders in February would typically be playing in the snow or inside keeping warm, but the second straight day of spring-like conditions had people excited.

“It’s great!” Jessica Cohn of Plainville said. “I’m a school teacher, so having weather like this on school vacation week is pretty awesome.”

The temperature at T.F. Green in Warwick hit 64 degrees around 3 p.m. Wednesday, breaking the record for Feb. 21.
