Let's Talk Turkey

Posted by Chris Lambert

It's a cold start this morning, in fact many of the suburbs are dealing with quite the thick frost to kick the day off.  With a lot of low level moisture in place, all it took was for temps to cool overnight for all that water vapor to turn to ice crystals and cover just about anything from the grass, to the mulch to your windshield.  Maybe even a few patches of black ice are out there on sidewalks and driveways, so watch your step early this morning!  

Frost melts away quickly this morning as temps warm to near 50 this afternoon with partly sunny skies.  More low clouds may fill in through SE Mass with an onshore flow this afternoon, so we'll watch that potential.  Otherwise, we're still on cruise control this week with dry weather prevailing.

Not only is the weather quiet around here, but it's quiet around most of the country.  It'll be an active pattern the next couple of days across the Pacific Northwest, but for the Midwest, Southwest, the Rockies, all the way to the East coast, we're dry.

Thanksgiving Day forecast looks good.  We'll start the day off in the mid 30s, rise into the mid 40s for kickoff for all those High School football games, and end the day with mostly sunny skies and temps near 50.  Good luck to all the players out there, have fun, and eat lots of food after!

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.
