    Researchers at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst have found that Massachusetts will see very few days with temperatures below freezing by 2050.

    The study found that there could be as few as 20 days where temperatures dip below the freezing point.

    According to WBUR, there are currently about 90 days a year when temperatures reach that low.

    The lead author of the study, Michael Rawlins said the change is the "result of the continued emissions of climate-warming greenhouse gases."

    The study also found that North American as a whole will see fewer freezing days too.
