Cruise Control, Speed Limit 50

Posted by Chris Lambert

Temperatures at 5:00AM were a good 30 degrees cooler than they were yesterday at the same time.  Of course, yesterday had it's challenges with tracking rain and falling temperatures throughout the day. 

So how about today and the rest of the week?  Well, put it this way, get used to the cooler weather.   Temps average mid to upper 40s each afternoon, maxing out in a few towns at 50. Rinse and repeat that through the weekend.  The most clouds the next couple of day are across SE Mass/Cape/Islands.  Overnight lows range in the mid 20s in the burbs to mid 30s in the city.  At times, the breeze will be active out of the northeast, especially along the coast.

I don't see any storms in the forecast until Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.  Unfortunately, it looks like the potential is there for a big coastal storm to bring in lots of rain and wind.  Not a lock yet, but something we'll watch for.  Of course, next Wednesday, without a doubt, is a very busy travel day!

Enjoy the Fall weather.

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.
