Clouds, Clouds Everywhere

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Somehow we fell into a cloudy rut lately. No different today is clouds were all over the place and that did a number on the afternoon temps yet again. To add insult to injury, we had a feisty northeast wind for much of the day making it feel even cooler, more like November actually.

As we look into midweek, clouds are back at it tomorrow but the wind direction will be different. Huge! A southwest wind will prevail for the day and that will boost temps into the low 60s---if we see some sunshine, you can add on another couple degrees--plan on temps between 60-65 tomorrow. Now, that southwest wind will also bring the threat of some showers after 3pm--especially north & west of Boston. The reason for the showers is a cool front moving through the area.

This front is weak as temps on Thursday will still reach the low 60s. Another front will take aim on New England during the day Friday & that front has a mean streak. Friday will feature blustery & chilly conditions develop by afternoon & evening setting the stage for widespread frost (Excluding Boston) early Saturday morning. More on that tomorrow.

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.
