If you’ve been waiting for summer-like weather, you definitely got it on Wednesday.
The last time western Massachusetts saw 80 degrees was back in October of last year. We usually don’t feel the 80s until June.
Some people took advantage of the warmer weather by walking around downtown Northampton. Many were shopping, others just taking a stroll in the sun.
Most people were of course wearing summer clothes including shorts and short sleeves.
22News talked with one man who said he has been waiting for the summer time heat.
“I’ve been waiting for this since last year this winter,” Kevin Cardona-Cruc said. “In my opinion, this winter has been the worst because it hasn’t been cold for this long for a long time.”
The warmer weather will continue over the next couple of days.
