Spooky Looking Night (Not Weather Related)

Posted by Chris Lambert

All the little ghosts and goblins are geared up for the big day, and I'm sure, excited for the chance to roll out their costume that they've been waiting to show off.   Weather-wise we make out ok with a few scattered showers ending by mid afternoon, leaving a mostly cloudy, but dry late afternoon and evening.  Trick or Treat temps run into the upper 50s around 5PM, falling back into the low 50s by 7PM. 

The showers we pick up today, won't be nearly as heavy as the tropical downpours we dealt with yesterday morning and again last evening.  In fact, looking at the radar last night, winds were near 70-80 mph just above the surface, and a piece of that may have come down to surface in a microburst across Wareham.  The National Weather Service may visit, or at least examine some of the damage before confirming for sure. 

All and all, the rest of this week turns out quiet with temps cooling off and skies remaining mainly rain-free.   The next storm is a close call by Tuesday, plenty of time to track that.  Enjoy the evening with the kids, and hopefully the clean-up process for you is going as well as it can!

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.
