Surging Temps

Posted by Pete Bouchard

After the clouds broke, today turned into a real prize-winner! But that wasn't the remarkable part. The temperature range was:

                          High           Low

Wrentham        64               37

Natick                63               29

Wrentham        63               37

Pepperell          62               27

Middleboro       62               35

Auburn              60                38

 

The days are short, the sun angle is low and yet we manage a 35 degree turnaround in parts of our area? That's something you'd see in the spring, not a month away from the winter solstice.

Nonetheless, the warmer air is here. While not soaring to record levels, tempertures tomorrow will be well into the 60s! Sun is abundant, but so is the haze. Boston makes a run for 67, Worcester around 62. It's the last mild day we'll see for a while, so make it matter.

While Tuesday will still be mild, the fix is in. Cool front fires up the showers, and we'll hover near 60 for the first part of the day. Markedly cooler air follows the remainder of the week, and we might have some issues with clouds along the coast thanks to a chilly, moist northeast wind.

No big storms cooling in the long range.

Big salute to all the veterans out there! Thanks for your service to our country!!

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.
