Nice, But No Records

Posted by Chris Lambert

A sluggish Monday morning... seems like the stress levels that the Pats give me in the 4th quarter take a lot of energy out of me the next day.   Anyone else think that?  Hey, most importantly they won, I'll take it!

Anyway, what a great day at Gillette yesterday with sunshine, mild temps and a chance to honor our Vets.  Again, a big THANK YOU  to all that serve this country.

It is mid November but  it won't feel anything like that today.  Average high this time of year is 53, and we'll be pushing a good 12-15 degrees above that, yielding middle to upper 60s across the board as early fog lifts for hazy sun as temps warm up.  The breeze picks up out of the south, at times, gusting past 20mph. Despite being warm, we're nowhere close to the records as Boston's record was set in 1909 at 76 and Worcester's, that same year at 73.

Enjoy the mild weather while it lasts. 

Showers move in after midnight tonight, although most of them wait until tomorrow with a cool front working in.  That front will drop temps back into the upper 40s by late afternoon, after starting the day near 60 first thing in the morning.

Upper 40s to near 50 is where we stay the rest of the week, into the weekend.  But at least it's dry!

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.
