Gearing Up For The Weekend

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Hardest thing about the day after marathon coverage on a storm (besides the lack of sleep): finding things to talk about.

When you're knee-deep in a storm, there's an overabundance of things to discuss. Weather graphics almost make themselves. After everything settles down, however, nothing measures up. Everything seems mundane. Temps? Hmph. Sunshine? Meh.

But that's the idea, isn't it? Peace and quiet. Recharging the batteries for the next storm. (No, there aren't any on the horizon.)

So here are the details: holiday weekend warmup, no storms brewing, seasonable late next week.

Of all the days this weekend, Saturday is 'odd man out'. It will be a bit cloudier than the other two, and the temperatures don't move all that much. In fact, we'll see similar numbers to today: upper 40s to low 50s.

The warmth surges a bit too late to send the temperature soaring Sunday, but come Monday we should crest in the mid 60s! This time of year, it takes a couple of days for the mild air to settle in. And, as we'll find by the middle of next week, it can be easily pushed aside with just a simple cold front.

Have a great 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:


*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'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.
