Football, Turkey, Football, Turkey, More Football

Posted by Chris Lambert

Not quite sure how the day's events play out at your house, but it's a pretty good bet that turkey and football are involved... several times throughout the day.   Fortunately, shoveling and shivering in the cold is not on the list as sunshine warms us up into the lower 50s this afternoon and the breeze remains fairly light.

If that's not warm enough for you, tomorrow we'll top off in the middle 50s.  So for all you die-hard shoppers, the weather won't slow you down, the crowds on the other hand, probably will.

Some changes are on the way over the weekend as a cold front crashes in Saturday.  There won't be much moisture with this front, but I do expect a passing shower or two in the morning, and as the cold air pours in, maybe a passing flurry in the Worcester Hills and Monadnocks in the afternoon.  Temps go from the upper 40s around midday to the upper 30s by late afternoon.

Sunday remains breezy with temps struggling to climb out of the 30s and nudge 40.

Monday is quiet as well, but the potential is there for some rain or rain/snow mix to move in Tuesday.  Right now, the track remains uncertain, but it does appear enough warm air works in for all rain Tuesday night/Wednesday.  We're 6-7days out, so plenty of time to fine tune this forecast.

Happy Thanksgiving and have a wonderful weekend with family and friends!

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.
