At Least The Weather Is Nice!

Posted by Chris Lambert

Holy cow!  Did you get stuck in that traffic yesterday afternoon?  That was bad... it took me an hour and a half to go from Watertown to Canton, and I'm sure many of you have similar stories.  

While I can't promise good traffic patterns today, I can forecast good travel weather with temperatures running near 50.  We've had a lot of thin clouds overnight and early this morning, and we'll watch more lower clouds back in off the ocean midday and this afternoon.  So overall, we'll call it mostly cloudy, but DRY.

I do think we'll start off Thanksgiving with some low clouds, but they break for some afternoon sun as temps warm into the lower 50s.  With more dry weather in place, it's an overall good looking holiday.  High School football games kickoff around 10AM, and we'll have temps running in the lower 40s for that.

Friday is the warmest day with highs in the middle 50s. 

You know warmth doesn't last long this time of year, and it ends abruptly on Saturday.  Saturday will start off ok, but as a cold front comes in comes in, a passing shower transitions us colder and windier weather by the afternoon as temps go from the upper 40s late morning to the upper 30s by 4PM.

Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!

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.
