What A Difference

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Sheesh.....70s yesterday with abundant sunshine and now we are staring at 50s with rain developing....what a difference a day makes. The reason is a strong cold front that blasted its way through here last night (with thunderstorms mind you) and now has left a bag of chilly air behind.

The other thing about this cold front is that it has stalled just offshore & will hang out along the east coast for the next several days. This front will act like a highway for cars to travel along. The *cars* are storms and the first of a few is on the way as I blog. Clouds are already here and the raindrops are a few hours behind. that means you have a few dry hours this morning into the early afternoon but plan on raindrops--scattered at first---anytime after 3pm and into the evening. So yes, bring the rain-gear to Gillette today. It will serve you well.

This storm is a quick-mover and will peel out of here after midnight. Good as we can salvage the end of the holiday weekend with a mix of sun & clouds on Monday. Temps will be seasonably cool with afternoon temps near 60.

By Tuesday, another car---err--storm arrives with a fresh batch of clouds & rain scattered throughout the day. Cool weather continues.

Have a great Sunday.

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.
