Cool Weekend

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Let's see...we saw some fuzzy sun (hidden behind lots of high clouds), some chilly temps, light breezes, and dry weather.

Yep, that sounds about right for this pattern. And there's more in store in the WEEK ahead.

Clouds will be leaving us relatively soon, however. Because of that (clouds typically act as a "blanket" and keep the temperatures from falling quickly), temperatures will crumble after midnight. I expect lows to be in the low/mid 20s in some suburbs by morning.

Sun goes to work full-force tomorrow to bring us to the brink of 50 (oh boy). For what it's worth, our normal high is 52, so we're not far off. The weekend will see more sun and blue sky with light breeze. This is very unusual for the month of November. It's typically the cloudiest AND (at 3.98") the wettest month of the year!

We're sitting pretty for the next 7-10 days. No storms will threaten for Thanksgiving or the holiday weekend. The only major change I see is the possibility of a shot of cold air at the finish of Thanksgiving weekend. Could be enough to plunge us into the 30s.

Stay tuned.

Have a good weekend.

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.
