The Slope Is Gradually Down

Posted by Chris Lambert

 

I hope everyone had fun last night!  I'm sure the kids did, and now it's time to eat that stash of candy!  Teachers and parents... I wish you the best of luck the next few days as the sugar rush and lack of interest in "actual" lunch or dinner may be present.  For those towns that needed to delay trick or treating, the weather's just fine for the make-up dates going through the weekend.

The remnants of Sandy continue to weaken west of us, and as they do, what's left of the storm will have less and less of an influence on our weather.  More clouds than sun rule the skies the next couple of days, but it'll be mainly dry other than a few sprinkles in a few towns.  Highs average the mid 50s today and Friday.

The weekend overall looks good with partly to mostly sunny skies.  However, temps will cool, and factor in a breeze, the heavier sweatshirt or jacket may come back out of the closet.  Temps cool significantly at night and that means the heat kicks back on as well. 

By Monday and Tuesday, a lot of us wake up with temps in the 20s and highs only reach the mid to upper 40s. 

I don't see any chance for precip to move in until Wednesday as an ocean storm backs in close enough to give us a cold rain, and perhaps cold enough air is still in place that higher elevations in the interior have rain mixed in with.... ____.  What? Too soon?  We'll shall see.

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.
