Positive Looking Forecast

Posted by Chris Lambert

For the first time in two weeks, I don't have a hurricane or a major nor'easter in the forecast!  Whew... we deserve a much needed break.  The reason for a quiet week is thanks to a return to a +NAO(positive North Atlantic Oscillation).  As that indexed pressure pattern goes from negative to positive, the atmospheric "block", that has driven storms up the East Coast, breaks down, and we return to milder and quieter weather for a week.  The only rain I have on the 7-day forecast is with a cool front on Tuesday as showers come through.  

It's not to say you can't get storms in a +NAO, it's just that the chances of one are lower.  Last winter, the NAO was in the + phase a lot.  Two winters ago?  You guessed it... in the - phase a lot.

Ok, enough technical stuff... just give you the forecast  right?  

More sun than clouds today, breezy, temps near 50.  More clouds than sun tomorrow with lighter winds.  Near 50 again.  Early clouds Sunday break for sun, near 60 in the afternoon, including a 58 degree kickoff temps for the Pats vs Bills game.  Great tailgating weather overall.   We'll continue to see nice weather on Veteran's Day with highs in the mid to upper 60s!  No snow left after this stretch. 

Enjoy the 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.
