Snap Of The Fingers

Posted by Chris Lambert

And just like that, our burst of summer warmth ends this evening as a cool front pushes in a few passing showers.  Although the rain may fall and interrupt plans once and a while early this evening, the real story is how cool it gets and how fast it gets.  Heading out to dinner around 6PM in Boston or the South Shore, and temps are still warm,  by 8 or 9 PM, you walk out that door and ask "what happened to the warm weather?". The change of temps are even quicker north and west of the city.  We're back into the 50s real fast this evening and back into the 40s overnight.

The cool front that moves through this evening stalls just south of us on Sunday, and keeps us on the cooler side of things. I don't want to call the whole day Sunday a washout as much of the morning through lunchtime remains dry, but, 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.  Although, I must say, there is a chance mid to high level clouds move in thanks to a storm just offshore.  If that happens, the frost bet is off.

You can also forget about the 70-80 degree weather next week as well as a typical, fast moving Fall pattern settles in with breezy conditions and occasionally a passing shower.  Despite that isolated rain threat late Wednesday and late Friday, the weather is dry with 30s and 40s at night and 60s in the day.

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.
