Calm, Cool and Collected

Posted by Chris Lambert

Overall the weather pattern is calm and cool for the collected.   I don't expect many big day to day changes, although, each day will have it's nuances. 

Today, more clouds hold tough across SE Mass, and well even see a few sprinkles, patchy drizzle across Plymouth, Buzzards Bay, Cape, and the Islands.  Northwest of Boston, more sunshine holds on, especially outside Route 128.  We'll have to watch for some clouds backing in along the coast from the city to Cape Ann, but we'll do better in the city with breaks of sun than the Cape.  Temps average the middle 40s for all of us this afternoon.

Also, there's a coastal flood advisory in place, from 10:00AM-1:00 PM today,  for minor coastal flooding and splash over around high tide which is around 11:30AM.  Astronomical high tide and onshore winds are the issue. 

Brighter skies overall tomorrow as a new area of high pressure builds in and a northerly breeze drives the low clouds back offshore.  That refreshed area of high pressure also keeps the cool weather around, so another day in the upper 40s graces us.

How about the weekend?  You guessed it!  Cool and dry, near 50.  A bit breezy at times Sunday, but at least it's dry for the Pats game.

Early next week we'll track a big coastal storm offshore.  It appears that the center of circulation stays far enough away that it'll be dry around here. However, I do expect winds to increase, so more cool and windy weather is on the way.  We'll keep tracking this storm through the week.  Obviously it's high stakes weather next week with such a big travel week.

And remember this for next week...  "Train don't run out of Wichita... unlessin' you're a hog or a cattle. People train runs out of St-Stubbville."

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.
