Kicking The Feet Up

Posted by Chris Lambert

It's nice to have quiet weather on the 7-day forecast, especially after a hurricane, a nor'easter and with the holidays coming up.   Sure it'll be on the cool side, but that's not too unexpected by mid to late November. 

Not that the weather is ever 100% easy, but for New Enland standards, this is about as close to kicking the feet up as a meteorogist can get.  Just some day to day minor changes to deal with. 

Today features quiet a bit of clouds this morning, although some of those mid to high level clouds thin a bit late this morning and into this afternoon.  That'll allow for partly sunny skies.  Although some low clouds could hang tough across the Cape and Islands.   We'll also watch the potential of minor coastal flooding again a couple hours either side of the noon high tide, thanks to an astronomical high tide.  Same locations that saw issue yesterday (Morrissey Blvd in Boston, Cohasset , Scituate). 

More sunshine dominates over the weekend and even into next week.  That ocean storm we've been tracking for next week, will develop, but will stay out to sea.   By Thanksgiving, indications are that warmer air starts moving in along with the dry weather that continues.

Enjoy the weekend and go Pats!

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.
