Slowly... But We Get There

Posted by Chris Lambert

I'll be honest, weather-wise, I've been looking forward to this day since Monday, knowing that the mid-week period would be dreary and knowing that warm weather really kicks in this afternoon.   As Tom Petty knows... waiting is the hardest part, and we do have to wait a few more hours this morning as dense fog dampens the morning commute.

Once the sun does break out (mid morning), temps are off to the races and many of us top off this afternoon in the middle to upper 70s.  That yields to a comfortable evening with temperatures falling back into the 55-60 range overnight.  Some patchy fog could form late, but it won't be as widespread as what we're dealing with this morning.

Saturday starts off nice with some sunshine and a mild breeze.  Thanks to that southwest breeze, we'll warm-up nicely, again into the middle 70s.  However, in the afternoon, expect more clouds and a passing shower or two, with the best chance for rain the farther north and west you go. 

Those scattered showers are with a cool front that slips just south of us on Sunday, and puts us on the cooler side of things.  Unfortunately, a wave of low pressure runs along the front and produces rain for us Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening.  Temps Sunday may near 60 by noon, but then they'll fall back into the lower to middle 50s in the afternoon as rain sets in. So how about the Pats game?... by kickoff, 54 and rain.

The rains out of here by Monday, and a breezy and cool day is in store with a mix of sun and clouds.  As clouds melt away at night and winds go light, the set-up is there for a widespread frost overnight Monday/Tuesday AM.

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.
