Peaceful, Easy Feeling

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Well, Gronk's out, in-laws are coming for Thanksgiving, and you have to work Friday.

But at least the weather's nice!

Bit cool for sure. After the deep-freeze again this morning, we managed to get NEAR 50 this afternoon. Our high temps won't budge much in the coming days as we see more of that east/northeast breeze. Combined with a stubborn deck of clouds spinning around a gargantuan low pressure system off the Carolinas and Florida, the cool wind won't let us even consider a warmup.

By the time Thanksgiving rolls around however, that wind will be a little less obvious, the skies a little brighter, and the temperatures a little milder. We'll call it seasonable now, but by Black Friday, it's above normal.

Long range, our quiet weather will get a bit of a shakeup with some showers Saturday. Cold air will follow along with some brisk cold.

Safe travels!

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.
