#Winning

Posted by Chris Lambert

What an afternoon and evening yesterday!  Temps ran in the middle to upper 70s with bright sunshine throughout the afternoon.  That sunshine today won't be quite as bright this afternoon as more clouds move in from the west, but the overall pattern favors another winner as temps head into the middle to upper 70s.  

As a cool front approaches late this afternoon and this evening, the breeze picks up and a passing shower can't be ruled out, but much of the time will still be on the dry side.  One difference you will note is that this evening cools much quicker than it did last evening thanks to the passage of the cool front.  Overnight lows head back into the 40s in the burbs to near 50 in Boston.

That cool front stalls just south of us on Sunday, and keeps us on the cooler side of things.  Unfortunately, a wave of low pressure also 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.

Enjoy the weekend and go Pats!

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.
