Settle Down

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Ready for a quiet weather pattern? Me too. Here's why it's been so stormy lately:

That ol jet stream all buckled up with no place to go. That big dip it's taking in that picture promotes big/nasty slow moving storms. Sandy and the nor'easter are exhibits A & B. Thankfully, the pattern will settle down as the jet stream will now look like this for a few days:

All the storminess will shift to the west coast over the next 5-10 days and that will give us here in the east a much deserved break. Getting into this newfangled pattern will be some weather. It's a warm front---the front edge of the warmer air--and that front will produce a batch of clouds by this afternoon into the first part of Sunday. Look for afternoon temps to reach 50 today and into the mid 50s tomorrow. By Monday we're even warmer with temps reaching the mid 60s! Our next chance of rain is Tuesday---not from a storm but rather a cold front. Until then...enjoy the break!

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.
