Send In The Clouds

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Sure felt like fall out there today. Even with all that sunshine I still felt cold--many towns struggled to reach the low 50s and Worcester didn't even reach 50 (49). Just as quick as the cold arrived, it's already heading back out of town as I blog.

Send in the clouds!!

Clouds are filling up the sky right now and they will hang with us for tonight and a good portion of tomorrow. These clouds are tied to a warm front though and it will deliver the goods. This front will also deliver showers early Sunday morning--especially along and north of the MA Pike but as we approach noontime those showers fade away and so will the chill. I think most towns will reach the mid 60s by Sunday afternoon as that warm front does its thing. The only thing about this warm-up is that it will be warm air moved into New England and that means wind. Quite a bit of wind actually as many towns see wind gusts between 20-30 mph, especially along the coast & hilly terrain. As for outdoor plans tomorrow, the afternoon hours will offer dry times.

If you are heading into town tomorrow morning for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk plan on some morning rain & temps in the upper 40s--we hope to see you there! (Pete will be broadcasting the weather live from the Hatch!)

Enjoy your Saturday evening.

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.
