Patience People

Posted by Chris Lambert

Ugh... yeah, another one of those days.  We're locked in the clouds, areas of dense fog, drizzle and occasional showers with bigger drops working through.  In fact, I think we'll see steadier and heavier showers roll in this afternoon and this evening. Maybe even a rumble of thunder.   Temps all day are once again stuck into the 60s, so what it felt like yesterday, it'll fell like today.

But I do have good news!  Tomorrow is a fantastic day, and if it's your start of the Holiday Weekend, it's a beauty.  Temps break out to the upside early thanks to returning sunshine and with highs in the middle 70s in the afternoon, we can get back to shorts and t-shirt weather.

Saturday overall looks good too.  Back to the lower 70s, with more clouds around in the afternoon.  I don't expect much rain Saturday, but I can't rule out a passing afternoon shower north and west of 495.  Even there, most of the day is dry. 

The problems arrive Sunday as a front stalls out across the area and a wave of low pressure rides along it.  This time, we're on the cooler side of the front with temperatures nearing 60 by late morning, then falling into the low 50s as the rain picks up in the afternoon.

It's a quick moving system, so it's outta here by Monday morning, but a breeze and temps only in the 50s stick around for Monday afternoon.

50/50 Weekend

Posted by Chris Lambert

We're off to an iffy start to the weekend as nuisance rain and wet snow moves across the area.  While it's not a well organized area of low pressure, it develops right near us midday, and that'll be enough for a tricky forecast.  Light to moderate  rain/snow is on and off early this morning with a heavier burst of precipitation possible late morning, through mid afternoon in eastern MA (11:00AM-3:00PM).

Final Days

Posted by Pete Bouchard

That's the way to get it done! Fine finish to the workweek as sun dominated and winds behaved.

I submit that is the one - and perhaps only - reason these days have felt springlike in this extended thaw. If the winds were gusty on a day like today, the sun (albeit a little stronger these days) is really no help.

Great Mid-Winter Weather

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Nice mid-winter weather? Here's how I envision it:

*Sunshine

*Mild temps (40 or higher)

*Little to no wind

That last bullet point (IMO) is probably the biggest when outside this time of year. After our morning fog lifts out of here all three of those criteria will be met this afternoon AND.....it's Friday. #Winning.

Colder Temperatures Cometh

Posted by Pete Bouchard

As far as blah days go, this was the blahest.

Fog blanketed the area as winds remained light and variable. We're still looking at some fog, but the thickest part of it should only be during the first half of the night. After that, gentle winds should "mix out" some of the heavily fogged in areas.
