Moving On

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

it was so tough out there today doing yard work compared to yesterday's temps in the 70s and to make matters worse, afternoon showers cut into that work. It was a storm sliding along a cool front, the same front that ended our flirty behavior with summer-like temps yesterday.

This storm is a quick-mover and will peel out of here after midnight. Clouds from this storm may linger up close to 4am, that should prevent temps from dipping too low as most towns will finish in the upper 30s to low 40s by early Monday morning. As for Columbus Day itself, you won't have to head to the new world in search of sunshine as dry air will come to us. Good as we can salvage the end of the holiday weekend with a mix of sun & some clouds (clouds will gang up on us by late day). Temps will finish on the cool side of the fence (a term for normal--65) with many towns near 62 by mid afternoon. Delightful for festivals, leaf-peeping or searching for The Great Pumpkin.

By Tuesday, another storm takes a swipe at us with clouds & rain. Like this afternoon, Tuesday's rain will keep temps pinned down into the upper 50s for much of the day.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!

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.
